An amazing community response for Highland Park

Since the tragic events of July 4, this community has rallied together in ways that have blown even us away. Countless donors helped raise nearly $20,000 for Highland Park Community Foundation's July 4 Shooting Fund in a mega-bake sale, hundreds more g2 volunteers filled 1,700 water bottles with cards and snacks for local first responders, painted hundreds of rocks, delivered wagons and chairs to those who were at the parade, and stopped by g2HQ to spend time together, work on projects, talk and heal.


Thank you to everyone who has supported our efforts, and helped to spread gratitude and create new, positive memories!
