Moblizing an Army of Caring and Invested Volunteers

New Visions for Lawrence County is a grassroots movement that seeks community growth through the engagement of volunteers and community partners.  Our philosophy is to lend a hand, where a hand is needed and our purpose is simply to make tomorrow better than today.

INCREASING DOWNTOWN FOOT TRAFFIC

Increasing foot traffic downtown- in order to bring life downtown, we must bring lives downtown.  New Visions volunteers and community partners have coordinated projects, activities, and events in downtown New Castle in order to increase foot traffic (ultimately hoping to help the downtown businesses).

Events have included the annual holiday parade, a seasonal ice skating rink in Riverwalk Park, Small Business Saturday, the outdoor summer concert series, Cash Mobs, tours, and more.

CONNECTING & BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS

 New Visions does not have all the answers, we don’t have a ‘magic pill’, but we are a group who is willing and committed to step up and do something.  We are seeking others who are willing as well.  Together we can create the pride, buy-in, and hope that our community needs to move progress forward.

New Visions is always looking to initiate conversations, serve as a catalyst, and bring people together for a common purpose.

BEAUTIFICATION

Beautification projects give us all an opportunity to pull together and take some positive control over our community.  New Visions volunteers and community partners have been active in planting flowers, cleaning up, and enhancing local landmarks.

This effort is supported heavily by the Greater New Castle Beautification Fund and annual grants from the Ecolab Foundation.  We are always in search of groups who want to ‘Adopt-A-Block’.  If you can’t give of your time and energy, consider making a financial donation to help keep our city pretty.

SHARING A MESSAGE OF HOPE

“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility.  It’s easy to say ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my problem.’  Then there are those who see the need and respond.  I consider those people my heroes.” -Fred Rogers

There are heroes among us and a community that needs our help.  New Visions volunteers and community partners are actively sharing hop that tomorrow can be better than today.
