TRPIL would like to thank Hartman & Hartman, Inc. and EQT for their incredible support on our recent accessible planter box project. TRPIL I&R Specialist Christine Sheppard began tracking an overwhelming interest in this project, and cited the need for over 24 accessible planter boxes in our community.

From there, our good friends at Hartman & Hartman worked tirelessly to build said boxes, and brought them directly to our new program and community center, where consumers were on hand to see the boxes unloaded and thank Hartman & Hartman directly. In addition, the incredible team at EQT were on hand to help unload and deliver the planter boxes to consumers in the community. This project truly took shape not only because of the documented need of TRPIL consumers, but because of the incredible volunteer effort and support from both Hartman & Hartman and EQT. TRPIL cannot thank you enough!
