Mecoy Communications cuts through the clutter to develop clear messages and materials that move people. They quickly understood what we do at Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust, and they developed the messages and materials that helped us reach the donors and community members whose support we need to achieve our goal of ‘Growing Healthier Communities through Urban Parks & Gardens.’ As a nonprofit with budget constraints, we also appreciate that the messages and materials they developed have stood the test of time as our program has grown and evolved.
