As you already probably know, one of the many things The Plant Shack does is give back to the community. We LOVE giving back and we will continue to do so as long as we are able.
A couple months ago, Rachel, the owner of The Plant Shack was away and being shuttled to an airport towards the end of her trip. The young driver, Victor, was a polite, respectful young man who talked about his family, friends, and how and if he can afford college.
To make a long story short (by all means if you want to hear the long version, come into the store and just ask!), Rachel was so inspired and moved by this young mans story, his hard-work, determination, and purposefulness - she decided right there should would start a scholarship fund to help kids just like Victor.
Then "Grow Your Future' Initiative sprouted (alright enough with the puns).
Rachel cannot do this alone though. She is asking for donations outside of what she will be donating from proceeds of The Plant Shack sales.
If you can help - thank you. Every dollar counts and will help a teen become a college student.
*Scholarships will be awarded once a year directly to the school of the winners choice, if completely funded to $500. If donations exceed $500, that will be carried over into the next year. Applications will be accepted in the spring, and announcements will be made prior for students to apply and to review any qualifications.
When donating, please write "Victor" into the comment section. Thank you!
