The 4 News Now Extreme Team is dedicated to making a difference in our local community and we had the chance to do exactly that through all of our projects in 2019.
Next Extreme Team project: Making Spirits Bright
The Extreme Team with the help of BECU and ACE Hardware will be decorating Cowley Park this holiday season for the children at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital, and all the community, to enjoy!
The 70th Extreme Team project: Partners With Families & Children
Our call for entries, asking our community: what organizations need the volunteer help and ingenuity of the Extreme Team, identified Partners with Families & Children as a local non-profit agency deserving of help! In partnership with BECU, The Extreme Team (Mark Peterson and many volunteers!) will be creating a serenity garden to help both the families and staff at the agency.
Partners with Families and Children prevents, interrupts and repairs cycles of abuse and neglect within families. They have been serving the Spokane community for 30 years and have seen a 40%+ increase in demand for their services from the Children’s Advocacy Center in the past year alone. The rise in family stress, addiction and homelessness, causes children to become our community’s most helpless victims. A new larger building was recently purchased to bring more services under one roof, but landscaping and an inspirational garden area to meet therapists and groups was put on hold after other repairs took precedence. Through the Extreme Team, sponsors and donations, the garden will become a reality for children and families to go for healing and rejuvenation.

The Extreme Team July project: helping Dria’s Wish come true. Many local companies contributed to make something so very special for a deserving child.
Meet Dria, an adorable 4 year old with SCIDS, which means her immune system is basically non-existent. Dria isn’t able to go to school, or see anyone other than doctors and immediate family. What Dria wants for her Wish is the same thing ANY four-year-old wishes for: to play outside. Dria’s doctors have approved an outdoor play area using Astroturf and concrete. Now that summer is upon us, we are ready to get going on this Wish. Follow our Facebook page for updates and if you’d like to donate to the Wishing Star Foundation email firstname.lastname@example.org
