GGS Structures Donates Greenhouse to Help Children’s OrganizationSource: GGS Structures Inc.

Rose City Kids recently unveiled its plans for building a rooftop greenhouse solarium from GGS Structures.

Rose City Kids recently unveiled its plans for building a rooftop greenhouse solarium. At the annual fundraising dinner it was revealed that the greenhouse structure has been donated by GGS Structures Inc.

Rose City Kids is a non-profit organization whose goal is to make a difference in the lives of children ages 4 through 12 living in Welland, Ontario. Rose City Kids is described as a free program held every other Saturday to let kids just be kids, and to give them hope. They launched their first program in March 2008, and it now serves more than 600 children.

The greenhouse is custom designed to fit the roof section available for construction. GGS worked with their sister company, JGS Limited, which specializes in architectural greenhouses and roof top greenhouse construction.

The greenhouse solarium will be part of the second floor of the Rose City Kids headquarters. When the kids arrive for tutoring, they have a healthy snack provided for them, and they can go with their tutor anywhere in the building to work on homework and lessons. The greenhouse will be a calm place for kids to feel safe and learn. This will also be an area for the Junior Leadership training to go to relax, and for quiet time.

With the greenhouse donation from GGS, the organization will be able to offer a safe and comforting refuge for children to learn and play in.
