You, too, can choose among close to 100 projects in the Unite Rochester Challenge Ballot
to receive a $5000 grant; here's the one I picked:
Neighbors Project: This project will provide training to young men, equipping them with skills and experience to gain employment in the building trades and property management, while also improving downtrodden neighborhoods. We will recruit students from city neighborhoods and rehabilitate a city-owned property scheduled for auction. Submitted by Teresa Owen, NEST.
This one aims to help real people learn real skills to solve real problems; the others were mostly about fostering white ethnomasochism
