HELP US SET A SHINING EXAMPLE!!

The GLEN LAKE ENVIROTHON TEAMS have been working for over a year to get an 8kW, adjustable solar array at Glen Lake Community School. They have raised $20,000, but they need your help to cross the finish line. Please donate today to help make this incredible project a success.

Local businesses and local leaders are stepping up to fill that gap.
