- Participate in Friday Flowers by leaving flowers, plants or a note of support every Friday on the front step of neighbor's home.
- Give hope by making a donation to the Hope Grows Here Fund to support access to mental health care programs and services.

You've got this. We've got this. #HOPEGROWSHERE
Hours after we put out a call on social media for volunteers to join this special volunteer project, hundreds signed up. The person on the receiving end of your emails, Maria Estrada, reflects on what she read:
"I just wanted to say that during these uncertain times, I am very grateful to see another side of people. All these volunteer emails have been medicine to my soul. I have literally sat behind my computer screened and cried. Not because I am sad or distressed, but because I am moved by the community support and their stories. I have a retired doctor, social worker, new mom, an 81-year-old widow, and so many others, that just want to do their part and help. It is amazing.
- Maria Estrada, MultiCare Volunteer Services Coordinator
Because of you, Hope Grows Here.
Thank you to our founding partners, artists and contributors
