Looking for the perfect charity to support with your fundraiser? Smile Farms is a great choice!
Smile Farms is a non-profit organization that provides people with developmental disabilities meaningful work in agricultural settings. It was started by Jim McCann, founder of 1-800-FLOWERS.com, who received a phone call from the CEO of Independent Group Home Living (IGHL), where his brother Kevin lived. IGHL was having trouble finding jobs for their clients so Jim started a greenhouse to create jobs. Since then, Smile Farms has grown to 7 campuses employing 110 individuals with developmental disabilities. By fundraising for Smile Farms, you are helping to open more farms and employ more individuals, giving them a paycheck and a sense of purpose.
