When Life Gets You Down, Just Keep Kicking!

Show of hands…who gets a little nervous just thinking about gym class kickball? You’re standing up there, all eyes on you, with the fate of your team in the balance. Most of our Board members left that experience behind years ago, but they were willing to get back in the game for the sake of the children of The Patch! Kickball was just one of the activities...

New Year, New Efficiency! The Patch Upgrades Financial Management

The Cabbage Patch is beginning the New Year with a new financial management system, and a new senior manager of finance and accounting! Because we are not a Metro United Way agency and do not solicit government funding, we depend on donors like you to provide life-changing programs to at-risk youth. For more than 106 years, the organization has maintained high...
