Nonprofit In Lawton, Oklahoma Seeking Donations For Community Garden Mural
Murals have been popping up all over local Oklahoma communities, both rural and urban. These murals often tell a story, pay homage to the landscape or honor a local face. But these murals don't come cheap! Paint and labor costs are pretty high, which is why a local nonprofit in Lawton, Oklahoma, is needing the community's help.
Hungry Hearts Feeding Ministry is seeking donations for a mural that will be added to its outdoor garden space. Hungry Hearts is a nonprofit feeding ministry with a mission to "help put a stop to the pain of hunger." When it first started, Hungry Hearts would have pop up feedings in various areas of town. But now they have a permanent location on SW 11th Street in Lawton where they offer free meals to those in need.
Hungry Hearts Feeding Ministry founder, Adriene Davis, known in the community as Ms. Adriene, is an avid gardener and offers free gardening classes through the ministry. She also uses her talents to provide produce for the feeding ministry and to give away to people in need.
Mural will provide smiles and beautification to the community.
In the feeding ministry's Facebook post about the mural, they will be working with local artists on this project, which is projected to cost $1,300. As of Feb. 16, Hungry Hearts Feeding Ministry has raised $655 for the mural. They also included a mock up of the potential mural, which features a bee in a big sky heading towards a box of fresh produce.
So if you're passionate about taking care of the people in your community and making it beautiful, then this is a great opportunity for you to get involved! For more information about Hungry Hearts Feeding Ministry, you can visit the nonprofit's website or check out its Facebook page.
