Yes! I want to donate money and be part of revitalizing the Charlesgate area! We have done so much, but there is much more to do! My money will help us add to our list of achievements by funding the following:
- Most importantly, continuing with the Landing Studio architectural firm and their proposals in conjunction with the Department of Conservation of Recreation (DCR) and the Emerald Necklace Conservancy to make a better Charlesgate a reality
- Temporary projects in the space, such as art installations, theater productions, and community events
