BE A GREAT NEIGHBOUR

We are a group of people who want to see our city flourish. We believe that a great city starts with being a great neighbour.

WHAT IS THIS EXACTLY?

We think of ways to boost people. That could be as simple as writing a thank you note to an old teacher that made a difference in your life, to organizing a group of people to take over a gas station for an hour and pay for everyone’s gas (that happened!). We’re constantly on the lookout to be for the people of our city.
