As a non-profit organization, Troy Main Street works to create a charming, prosperous, and interactive Downtown Troy. This year, in addition to enhancing the downtown, the organization is giving back to the greater community.
"Last year, we happened to host an event right after Hurricane Harvey hit," said Nicole Loy, Executive Director of Troy Main Street. "In an effort to help, we laid out a jar for people to donate to a Hurricane Harvey relief fund. From that single event, the community donated $330. We want to make a similar impact this year, but this time, we're focusing on the community we already serve: the community of Troy."
The donation jar will return at Troy Main Street's first event of the year, The Taste of Troy Trivia Night. The Taste of Troy Trivia Night will be held Tuesday, February 27 at 6pm at St. Patrick's Parish Center. Information on tickets can be found on the Troy Main Street Facebook page and on www.troymainstreet.org.
"Every contribution in the jar at the Taste of Troy Trivia Night will be donated to Troy City School's Key Club," said Loy. "Several students in Key Club are volunteering their time to make the Taste of Troy Trivia Night run smoothly, so we feel this is the perfect organization to donate our 'tips' to. Troy Main Street strives to make a positive impact on the community; this is just another way we are able to do so."
