Restore Old Town Greenwood, Inc. (ROTG) is pleased to announce that we received a $1,000 #GivingTuesday grant from the Johnson County Community Foundation (JCCF). Thank you to everyone who nominated for our organization. A random drawing of entries was conducted and Jennifer Hollingshead’s nomination was selected.
In her nomination, Jennifer said, “I’m thankful for this organization because I live in Old Town Greenwood and I’m starting to see the area come back to life due to the efforts of that group.”
The grant was part of JCCF’s 25 Days of Giving grants, in which they are celebrating a month of Giving Tuesdays. Visit JCCF’s Facebook page for more information.
ROTG plans to use this grant money towards our 2017 mural project. The organization is currently in the process of selecting an artist from applications recently submitted. The mural will be painted on the north wall of The Blind Pig and will feature a “Welcome to Old Town” theme.
