Pints for Progress

Pints for Progress is a community building initiative started by our friends LiveNF out of Niagara Falls, New York. The mission is providing a platform for community members to take and voice their concerns or ideas while providing the opportunity to receive funds helping them act upon their goal. It involves plenty of brainstorming and a ton of community interaction and involvement which are two things we can use in our Lockport community.
