GroundSwell is committed to making our region a better place to live, work, and play! We keep you informed on civic engagements happening around the city as well as volunteer opportunities. GroundSwell affects change from the ground up, one small action at a time. When you volunteer at a local community arts organization, help to clean up a community park, donate books to your local library, or even just pick up litter around your neighborhood, you are making a real difference and sending a clear message. Pride of place is contagious, and when you show that you care, you inspire others as well.
