FUNDRAISER FOR THE CENTER FOR NEIGHBORHOODS

Hey folks.

This week's organization is:

THE CENTER FOR NEIGHBORHOODS

The Center for Neighborhoods builds healthy, sustainable, safe neighborhoods through informed and committed neighbors in Louisville, Kentucky. It achieves that goal through community engagement, education, planning, and data assessment for many different neighborhoods throughout the city.

Since its founding in 1972, the Center for Neighborhoods has cultivated grassroots leadership, partnered with neighborhoods in community planning efforts, facilitated civic dialogue, and actively participated in neighborhood-based development & improvement projects.

DONATE TO THE CENTER FOR NEIGHBORHOODS

In addition to my donationhere's a song called 'The Sunny Side of the Street' that some of you may know. It's a song that reminds me that, as easy as it is sometimes to fall into despair, there is always hope. We must reach out to each other, and not only through these computers we use every day, but in person face-to-face. 

We may travel across town or across the world and think we don't have much in common with the people we encounter. But we do! This is all one neighborhood, wherever we are. We must find new ways to bring ourselves closer together in order to understand and empathize with one another to create a better world for everyone. 

The Center for Neighborhoods seeks to do just that through the work they do everyday. I hope you join me in supporting them!

THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET

GRAB YOUR COAT 

AND GRAB YOUR HAT

LEAVE YOUR WORRIES ON THE DOORSTEP

JUST DIRECT YOUR FEET

TO THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET

CAN'T YOU HEAR THAT PITTER PAT

WHEN THAT HAPPY TUNE IS YOUR STEP?

LIFE CAN BE SO SWEET

ON THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET

I USED TO WALK IN THE SHADE

WITH MY BLUES ON PARADE

BUT NOW I'M NOT AFRAID

MY ROVER'S CROSSED OVER

IF I NEVER HAD A CENT

I'D BE RICH AS ROCKEFELLER

WITH GOLD DUST AT MY FEET

ON THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET
