Thank you for helping us support Project C.U.R.E. relief efforts!

 

Thank you for your support! Our Project C.U.R.E fundraiser was a success.

 

We want to sincerely thank all of our generous neighbors, partners, and local businesses who showed up on Earth Day to support our 2nd Annual Earth Day Plant Sale to benefit Project C.U.R.E. in Centennial, Colorado. In partnership with CH2M and City of Centennial, our Project C.U.R.E fundraiser raised almost $2,000 through plant sales to send life-saving and much needed medical supplies to Project C.U.R.E.’s relief assistance efforts in Ecuador. The 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit in mid-April, devastating, injuring and displacing thousands of people, and toppling and destroying homes, businesses, and public infrastructure.

 

The proceeds from this fundraiser helps enable Project C.U.R.E. to work with strategically selected partners who are on the front lines in the affected areas of Ecuador and are administering care to the several thousands in need.

Terracare Associates strives to actively invest in our communities by finding ways to partner with local organizations, and giving back to the communities we live and operate in. We are thankful to find partners in amazing organizations – CH2M and City of Centennial – to help us spread the word and provide a larger positive impact on our communities.

 

Thank you again to all who stopped by and purchased a plant to benefit Project C.U.R.E. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
