About Project Our Town
PROJECT OUR TOWN is a non-profit organization that empowers people to help others.
Through both on-going opportunities and our annual 3-Day Weekend of Action, PROJECT OUR TOWN creates opportunities for volunteers to participate in meaningful, impactful projects that serve the community.
PROJECT OUR TOWN actually started as a two-day event for a non-profit organization called JTown. The response was so large and impactful, that it was obvious it needed to be its own organization in order to reach its full potential. So, in January 2019, our new organization was founded, a Governance Board was formed, paperwork was filed, and we hit the ground running.
We are so fortunate to be able to do this work. It is fulfilling and meaningful, hard and time-consuming. We are awed by all of the things that are being accomplished and the feeling of being inspired never seems to wear off. We are incredibly fortunate to have some remarkable volunteers that have joined us on this journey. They amaze us every day with their commitment, generosity, and passion. Please see the "Our Leadership" page (under About) for information about our Board members.
We recently brought in a number of new volunteers to lead large divisions of work for the Weekend of Action in November. They each bring so much talent, heart, energy, and enthusiasm. Our goal is to double our impact from last year and, with these big-hitters, we can definitely do it!
Below is the Impact Report from last year's event weekend. As you can see, this kind of work really resonates with people. It is still hard to look at it without getting a little choked up. There really is no better feeling in the world than knowing that you have made a real difference in the lives of others.
If you want to know more about PROJECT OUR TOWN or the Weekend of Action, let us know. It is our favorite thing to talk about! We sincerely hope that you will get involved throughout the year and participate in November's event. You will be so glad you did!
With full hearts,
