The Northland community has become a second home for Harmony Project. The partnership with the Northland Performing Arts Center has taken the 500-voice Spirit of Columbus choir to one of the city’s most diverse and vibrant communities, rich with culture, cuisine, and businesses.
Harmony Project is honored to work with a variety of partner organizations for its first One Day, One Community event benefiting the Northland community. The day will feature a variety of projects and supply drives to help beautify, support, and enhance the neighborhood.
Landscaping and painting projects will take place at two Columbus Department of Recreation and Parks facilities, Woodward Park Community Center and Feddersen Community Recreation Center, as well as two Columbus City Schools, Woodward Park Middle School and Columbus Global Academy. In addition, Woodward Middle School students will complete a community art project, created by artist Jeremy Jarvis, for permanent display at the school.
Harmony Project will also host a series of donation drives to collect supplies for a variety of organizations. Volunteers will collect art supplies to support Woodward Park Community Center programming; new and gently-used clothing for Goodwill Industries; and home goods and home renovation supplies for resale at the Habitat MidOhio ReStore Pop-up shop.
Volunteers will facilitate family-friendly games and activities at the Woodward Park Community Center and assist Lowe’s with their Plant & Grow program. They’ll also complete a large-scale trash collection effort on Morse Road, SR161, Karl Road and in surrounding areas.
While all volunteer positions are filled, you can still help by donating new or gently-used items to benefit Northland community residents. Donations will be accepted from 9-11AM. The full list of needed supplies and drop-off locations can be found here.
