REC’s parked in animal issues today!

Worcester city kids (and hands-on-learning) in one of REC’s Worcester community gardens!


Have you considered a gift to the REGIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL COUNCIL – REC – this year?

If you’ve already given to REC’s Annual Fund, THANK YOU for your generous support.

If you haven’t yet given, time is running out. There are only a few days left to give in 2015 to help build healthy, sustainable, and just communities in Central Massachusetts.

The REC relies on financial support from friends like you. Will you join in to help raise $37,000 – the amount needed to continue to make a powerful difference in 2016?

Your gift of $25, $50, or $100 will help close the distance on our fundraising goal. Help raise the final $19,000 needed so that together we can create a better Central Massachusetts in 2016.

Give today and say, “I’m in!”

When you give today, you will give young men and women their first job through YouthGROW, and you’ll help them become tomorrow’s community leaders.

You will help families stretch their food dollars by supporting the REC Mobile Farmers Market and Community Farmers Markets to reach senior centers, affordable housing complexes, and community spaces throughout Worcester with healthy, affordable, local food.

Your gift will also be visible next spring when more than 60 community and school gardens are flourishing throughout the city and when more than 1,000 volunteers come together to celebrate Earth Day with a citywide cleanup. 

When you give today and say, “I’m in!” you join with like-minded people to grow a better Worcester and Central Massachusetts!

Thank you for your generous support!

Steve Fischer, REC Executive Director and Julie Orozco, REC Board President
