Growing Power grows stronger with transportation donation

Glendale-based Growing Power Inc., has received a fourth van from GO Airport Connection to assist in the transportation of employees to worksites throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
“This is truly what community fellowship is all about,” said Brian Dunn, GO Airport Connection president. “Our business is moving people from one place to another safely and on time.  By donating another van we’re making sure anyone who wants to be part of this generous effort can participate and food provided by the care of workers and volunteers can be distributed back into the community.  It’s a lot more than donating a van, it’s about being part of the neighborhoods.”
Teens and other members of the community work in the gardens to ensure healthy, high-quality, and affordable food is made available to all residents of the greater Milwaukee area.
“This donation and the continued existence of our program have never been more important than they are right now,” said Will Allen, Growing Power CEO. “More people are out of work than ever before in Milwaukee. What we have been doing for more than 16 years is helping provide our youth educational work programs that support their communities. We teach respect, team work, and independent work habits to last a lifetime. It’s from their efforts that the entire community benefits. We could not be as effective as we are if we didn’t have the support and donations of businesses like Go Airport Connection.”
