Look at the Good You’ve Created: Issue No. 8

Thank you for checking out our monthly donor newsletter to get the chance to look at all the good that’s been created this month through the investment of our donors and business partnerships!

At Loveworks we believe you are NEVER too young to be a dreamer and NEVER too old to do your dream.  We are committed to helping students discover their potential and pursue their BIG dreams with programs that focus on building character, leadership development, and entrepreneurialism. Through mentorship and experiential learning, students are equipped to make positive life choices, empowered to solve problems, and explore career paths.

The garden shed has been a dream in the making since the summer.  It truly takes a village and now in December it is finally complete!  Students, friends and local businesses and organizations, and a passion project brought the community together to put a dream into action. The final touch, the mural on the back, was designed by local artist, Becca Campbell, and Loveworks students with a message to every person who sees it, “Never stop growing.” “It was great to see the girls work as a team. The time we spent painting together really helped even the most quiet in our group really warm up and come out of their shells.”

Meet the Gomboc family: Matt and Andrea, with their sons Sam and Ben who recently moved to Norman in August from rural Colorado.  Receiving a Loveworks flyer during back-to-school registration the family thought it looked like a great mix of activities and curriculum. After living in the country, they are avid gardeners, and Sam immediately connected with the Real Garden project at Loveworks, eventually recruiting his entire family, even his grandmother. Being around the other Loveworks students, Sam was inspired to start his own micro-business and recently joined the latest cohort of the Business Boot Up program. With the colder weather limiting gardening, he is selling his homemade hot-packs.  Loveworks has become a home away from home not only for Sam, but for the entire family. 

We are hopeful that you see how the support of our donors and business partners directly impacts the heart of our students and their families. Thank you to our donors and volunteers for being part of our story and investing in the lives of our students at Loveworks!

The Village is an incredible community of generous, passionate, and determined people – just like you. They give monthly to support programs that equip students for real life with mentorship, leadership skills, and experiential learning.  Join The Village today!
