Tempe Leadership Class 33 Partners with TCH

Posted on | November 30, 2017 | Comments Off on Tempe Leadership Class 33 Partners with TCH

Tempe Leadership’s most recent class is partnering with TCH to design and build a sensory garden at TCH’s Tempe headquarters. The garden will have sensory elements including art and musical instruments, a water feature, raised garden beds and will provide an enjoyable outdoor space and activities for TCH residents as well as an area for TCH to hold meetings and community events.

Shana Ellis, President and CEO of TCH and a Tempe Leadership alumna, is thrilled to see a community organization ready to make this sensory garden a reality. “This is something we’ve wanted for quite some time now and it’s exciting to see the planning begin!”

To complete this project, Tempe Leadership will work with local volunteer organizations to provide labor, community businesses to sponsor portions of the garden and raise money through a charity event and tax credit donations.  The project will begin in January 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in May.

This is Tempe Leadership’s thirty-third class of engaged members of the Tempe community, competitively selected to participate in the year-long program. “We were considering several great projects when the class visited TCH,” said Samantha Thompson, a member of Class 33. “Seeing the residents of TCH interact with the staff and environment there made us realize how incredibly special this place is.”
