This past November marked five years since we started working in the Delta, and it’s been nothing short of an incredible ride.
We’ve met amazing people who welcomed us into this community with open arms and went out of their way to offer words of wisdom, moral support, and true friendship. Our programs are going strong; the Cherry Street Fair drew upwards of 500 visitors per event this past season, the Helena Entrepreneur Center continues to foster the start and growth of new businesses in Phillips County, and the Helena Community Garden has been restored to a state of full usability and will yield its first of many harvests next year.
Additionally, we’ve been honored to work with a long list of wonderful clients—large and small, near and far— from Southern Bancorp Community Partners to the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Arkansas.
We believe in designing opportunity in Helena and the Delta, and we are so very grateful to those who share that vision with us. Your support means the world to us, and we truly wouldn’t be here without it.
So, from all of us at Thrive to you, thank you. Here’s to the next five years.
