Profiling Two Taste of Fifth Charities: Park Slope Civic Council and Good Shepherd Services

The Park Slope Civic Council is a volunteer organization that works at the grassroots to make Park Slope a better place. In the past and continuing through to today, they have fought to protect and expand the neighborhood's historic district, planted thousands of trees and launched visionary projects and advocacy efforts.
