The Town Fork Creek (TFC) Neighborhood Association kicked off its “Restoration through Outreach Learning and Leadership” (ROLL) crowd-funding campaign on Aug. 1. TFC was recently awarded a Community Capital Fund grant, with grant writing assistance from the Green Impact Zone staff. The $20,000 grant requires TFC to raise 10 percent, or $2,000, through an online donation site to receive the full amount. TFC has 11 days left to meet its fundraising goal. To learn more, watch the video at Indiegogo.com.

With the Community Capital Fund grant, TFC will:

• Hire a part-time community organizer.
• Recruit block captains for at least 20 percent of the 83 blocks within the neighborhood to improve communication with residents.
• Work to increase TFC association membership by 50 percent.
• Poll at least 75 percent of residents to raise awareness of the new Mary L. Kelly Community Center as an asset.
• Identify at least two residents to enroll in the Community Leadership Program, a free program offered to zone residents by MARC’s Government Training Institute.

The ROLL campaign runs through August 31. To donate, visit Indiegogo.com
