First Friday: Nonprofit Night is March 2nd and this time around, we've decided to shine a light on our local nonprofit sector in the Mid-Ohio Valley. This event is an opportunity for our entire community to visit with nearly 50 different nonprofit organizations to learn about their services, celebrate their impact, and sign up to volunteer.
Nonprofits will be paired with small businesses all throughout downtown as well as setup at the Armory on Front Street from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
So, how can you make the most of First Friday: Nonprofit Night?
+ Plan to eat local at any one of our nearly two dozen downtown restaurants. It's MOV Restaurant Week and a handful of participating restaurants are in downtown Marietta!
+ Support small business with your dollars by shopping locally. Downtown Marietta is home to 35+ active retailers and with the water levels and flood preparation of these last two weeks, it's never been more important to spend money downtown. It won't be hard, though; downtown Marietta is home to some of the best small business in the MOV!
+ Learn about local nonprofits by visiting shops and the Armory. Ask questions, subscribe to newsletters, learn about new programs, and join us in celebrating our nonprofit sector.
+ Show gratitude to the Marietta Community Foundation, our title sponsor for Nonprofit Night. Swing by their office to learn about their impact in Washington County and how their donors directly support the building up of our beloved community.
