Why Solar?

By displacing fossil fuel energy sources with urgency, SOLS projects will help cut air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, reduce energy costs, and serve as a sustainability learning tool.

Heart2Heart

Pet Lifeline

Recognizing the healing power of companion animals, the mission of Heart2Heart Pet Lifeline is to keep pets out of shelters and rescues and help owners keep them in loving homes. To that end, we provide financial assistance for veterinary care to income-eligible pet families in need who do not have other options for care. No owner should have to choose between medical care and euthanizing or surrendering a pet.


We are a nonprofit organization hoping to make a difference. We work with Coulee Region Humane Society and other pet rescue organizations, as well as local veterinarians, to identify clients and award grants needed to keep pets healthy and in loving homes.

GROW

GROW is a nonprofit founded to connect youth to healthy food and nature. We believe healthy minds and bodies are nourished by foods that come from the earth. When youth are exposed to experiential garden-based learning they are more likely to try and incorporate the healthy foods they have had a part in growing and preparing into their diets. This impact makes a difference in the overall health of youth and ultimately our community.

Strive2Thrive Coulee Region & GROW present a virtual reading of

"Worm McWorm and the Decomposers" by Nick Nichols

with a kid's gardening activity.
