Hello and welcome to our company blog! At this point in time, we are making many decisions regarding our business goals and are looking forward to sharing our product with you very soon. Our company name, domain address, and product will all develop shortly! As a group, we are excited about creating something that truly embodies the spirit of the Harrisonburg community. Our town is a very special and unique place, and we are often excited to see how Harrisonburg grows each year. With that said, the profits from our ventures will (in full) be donated to benefit the Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance.
What is the Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance?
HDR is a non-profit organization helping to lead growth of Harrisonburg’s downtown heart. Revitalizing downtown into a vibrant and cultural city center is at the heart of their mission, and the organization strives to promote downtown through events, attractions, and awards that set ‘The Burg’ apart from other communities. To achieve this, HDR works in collaboration with public and private partners: government officials, businesses, property owners, residents, James Madison University and other key stakeholders to develop and implement a comprehensive vision and master plan that preserves downtown’s historic charm while making it a destination for people to live, work, shop, dine, and play.
We know Harrisonburg locals take a lot of pride in this city and we are more than happy to partner with HDR to build community goals. Stay tuned to learn more about our upcoming product and how you make a donation to this organization through your purchase.
In the meantime, we would also like to briefly introduce ourselves. We’re looking forward to meeting more people in this community, so here are some fun facts to break the ice.
