Holiday Gift Drive

We Got This community is doing a holiday drive for those in need. As COVID hit, many hourly workers have been hit hard with their income. If you are able to give this year, we invite you to buy a gift and drop it off at the garden. You can also contact us if you would like an address to send the gifts. We encourage gifts for kids/youth 0-17.

All gifts must be unwrapped as we will be letting parents/guardians pick out a gift that their child would enjoy. If you would like to donate a roll of wrapping paper, that is appreciated too.

Drop off dates at the We Got This Garden (9th and Ring)

  • Saturday, December 19th 9AM – 4PM
  • Monday, December 21st 9AM – 4PM
  • Tuesday, December 22th 9AM – 4PM


“We Got This” is a program based out of Milwaukee, WI.  Started on 9th and Ring, this program began with a crew of young boys cleaning up their neighborhood and learning about gardening.  The program grew each Saturday as boys came out to assist in duties and were each subsequently paid 20 dollars for their efforts.  The program has continued to grow and each week during the summer young boys continue to make their way to 9th and Ring for cleanup and gardening.  Upon arrival, the boys are met by positive role models from the community to assist with their efforts.  “We Got This” is making efforts to put the “neighbor” back in the “hood” recreating neighborhoods.
