2019 Summer Project

The Vision for our 2019 Summer Project
(June 9th-August 3rd) Includes:

  • Mobilizing 650+ volunteers
  • Servicing 300+ homes
  • Painting 20 houses 
  • Repairing 10 porches 
  • Removing 500,000 pounds of trash

This summer an army of hope-filled volunteers will be flooding the streets of our beloved neighborhood, Allison Hill. We'll be targeting the 12 block area between Berryhill St. and Swatara St. and 13th and 17th. Their purpose? To restore the beauty and hope of our community. Days will be filled with beautification projects, outreach and other initiatives and every Saturday we will host a big community event! We have a chance to rebuild, restore and revive a key historic neighborhood of Harrisburg - don't miss this amazing opportunity!
