MARLTON, NJ. - JULY 30, 2018 – Better Tomorrows is pleased to announce it has received a $10,000.00 grant from the Leo & Peggy Pierce Family Foundation. These funds will help the residents they serve at Jackie’s Garden and New Covenant Manor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Better Tomorrows, a national nonprofit providing social services to affordable housing communities, provides residents with a variety of activities on a daily basis. One of the more exciting activities involved the creation of a traditional vegetable and a hydroponic garden to promote good health and food literacy within these two specific communities.
