December 2017
Dear Friends:

It's almost 2018. It's been a tough year for those of us who care about our fellow human beings and our country, especially our environment. There are lots of ways you can fight the good fight -- one of them is to give to TTF!  
The gift of your dollars is a vote for our work, to improve the water in the creek in your neighborhood! 

Your contribution will enable us to plant more rain gardens, lead more trash cleanups, educate more neighbors, and advocate for laws that protects our creeks.

Donations small and large are tax-deductible and help us defend the stream down the street! Your employer may even match your gift to double your impact.
