2021 in Review!

It’s been another big year for Hometown Pride in Warren County!

We completed 41 projects that boosted hometown pride and improved the quality of life in our 7 communities – including 17 events, 5 community amenities, 4 public art pieces, 6 clean-up days, and more.

We raised $60,000 for our endeavors, attracted more than 6,000 people to our events, worked with dozens of partner organizations, and received thousands of hours of volunteer time from over 100 amazing volunteers.

Thank you to all who gave their time, money, and heart to Hometown Pride in 2021. We could not be more grateful!
