Harmony’s award-winning service initiative, One Week One Neighborhood, engages hundreds of volunteers over the course of one week to create “one neighborhood” out of the many neighborhoods in our community. Due to COVID-19 protocols, this year means fewer available volunteer shifts. However, we will not let the pandemic stop us from generating a measurable impact in Columbus.

What Harmony Is Doing

  • Neighborhood Clean-up in the King-Lincoln/Bronzeville District
  • Landscape beautification at Lincoln Theatre
  • Mural Project at Sherwood Middle School
  • Food and Grocery Gift Card Drive
  • Evening of Poetry

How You Can Participate
