People for Parks is an agile organization, by which I mean that it is relatively small and definitely grassroots, so it is able to act quickly when approached for "just a little help." Although grants range from large to almost tiny, each one helps a group or organization enhance Minneapolis parks. People for Parks has provided support, large and small, for everything from a playground that will be accessible for every child to planting shrubs to replace buckthorn in the bird sanctuary.
