During the month of April we celebrated organizations working to honor WWII veterans, theatres bringing great art to their communities, a health clinic in rural Nicaragua, and a coalition of women innovating in central Ohio. Check out the great things these organizations are doing to better their communities:Honor Flight Capital Region provides DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia World War II veterans with trips to view their memorial and experience a special day of honor and remembrance. By bringing together hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers to greet veterans, Honor Flight Capital Region ensures that those that served and sacrificed during WWII get the thanks they deserve at the memorials built in their honor. The Women’s Fund of Central Ohio empowers the women and girls of Central Ohio to give of their time and money to celebrate, elevate, and educate women in their community and beyond. By making grants to local organizations, the Women’s Fund supports programs that drive at the root cause of issues to create long-term solutions. Long Wharf Theatre brings world-renowned theatre experiences to the New Haven area. With unique productions, they aim to start conversations and advance the art of live theatre. Their current production, The Shadow of the Hummingbird, has received high praise and national attention but is only one of 6 distinct productions they’re staging this season. Clinica Verde has created a beautiful, sustainable, and most importantly, effective health center in Boaco, Nicaragua. By focusing on the community’s needs and a holistic approach to individual care, CV is creating a prototype for community and health centers across an impoverished nation.Forum Theatre aims to bring adventurous plays that inspire and challenge their audience while still being “accessible, affordable and entertaining.” By being actively engaged in developing the skills of local artists, Forum Theatre truly enriches the greater Washington, DC area’s artistic community.
