Stephen Smith, Hyiat El-Jundi and Gene Boyd represented F.A.R.M. at the 2017 Carry The Load Kickoff event and Non-profit Partners Summit last week in Dallas. Both venues were filled with energy and enthusiasm, as non-profit leaders came together in support of Carry The Load’s mission, and to collaborate with one another as partners for good. It was an honor to be surrounded by so many amazing world-changers doing such great things.
Carry The Load is a national non-profit organization that provides active, meaningful ways to honor and celebrate the sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes — military, law enforcement, firefighters and first responders. What started as a simple act to honor and restore the true meaning of Memorial Day, has now evolved into a nationwide movement to bring all Americans together to participate in honoring our nation’s heroes every day. Check out the Memorial May Event to see how you can participate.
One of the generous ways Carry The Load works to fulfill its mission, is by selecting and supporting partner organizations with education, funding, training and awareness – tools to help grow our organizations to better serve our communities. The selection process is pretty extensive, and the selection committee has its work cut out for it as it reviews and votes on numerous non-profits who serve our heroes and defenders.
We are proud to announce that Carry The Load has selected F.A.R.M. as one of their 8 featured partners for 2017. We are thankful for the amazing work of Carry The Load, and we are honored to be partnered with them.
All of Carry The Load’s feature partners for 2017 are listed below. Be sure to visit their websites, refer anyone you know who may benefit from their services, and support them as they continue their mission of serving those who served.
Phase one of our plan will consist of removing portions of the parking lot, hauling in clean soils, building of the retaining walls, and installing gardens and fruit trees.
