Baltimore metro area-based non-profits are invited to enter to win financial or pro bono support beginning April 1.
Baltimore, MD (February 2, 2015) – Floura Teeter Landscape Architects announces its second annual “Community Grows Here” Facebook contest. FTLA invites members of the community to nominate a Baltimore metro area-based non-profit to enter to win pro bono services or financial or volunteer support throughout 2015. Nominations open February 2, 2015 and must be posted by February 28th on the FTLA Facebook page under the “Community Grows Here” tab. (https://www.facebook.com/FlouraTeeterLandscapeArchitects.)
FTLA launched Community Grows Here in 2014 as a follow-up to the company’s 10th anniversary initiative in which it supported 10 local charities in meaningful ways. The first annual Community Grows Here facebook competition was held last year. FTLA awarded Civic Works—Baltimore’s urban service corps and an Americorps program—pro bono services to revitalize the Dayspring Program Facility’s parking Lot, which will serve as the primary parking lot for the residents of Dayspring, a supportive housing program for homeless women and children.
FTLA’s design concept reimagined the existing unkempt parking lot to become a green parking site where the current impervious surface was replaced with a partial grass paving grid flanked by a rain. The design FTLA developed also helped Civic Works receive a $50,000 grant in the 2014 Growing Green Design Competition.
To enter FTLA’s Second Annual Community Grows Here Facebook competition:
Nominations open February 2nd and must be posted on the FTLA Facebook page no later than February 28th. To nominate a cause, posters must simply include:
1. The name of the organization.
2. The type of work the organization does.
3. The type of support requested.
4. Why this non-profit needs our help.
5. Any relevant photos or other information.
A panel of judges will choose their top three causes from those nominated. During the month of March, Facebook followers can vote on their favorite to win. The winning non-profit will be notified and announced in April 2015.
