Norristown, December 7th, 2015:  The Norristown Project and Montgomery County OIC will partner on a community service project for MLK Day of Service. To prepare for an expansion of programs at OIC and a new tenant, volunteers are needed to assist with painting and general cleaning on the 1st floor of the facility. The project will begin on January 18th at 10:00am, food and drinks will be provided. We are no longer accepting groups for this year’s project, however, we are still recruiting individual volunteers.

This is the 3rd year that the Norristown Project has participated in events across the town. For a second year in a row, we will work with OIC and the new tenant as they prepare for exciting changes in the building. Montgomery County OIC’s building is listed on the National Registrar of Historical Places and was once home to Hancock Elementary School. OIC of America, Inc. purchased the building in 1964 for $40,000 and burned the Mortgage by 1985. Today, OIC houses programs that support 500 families per year, providing daycare, literacy and job training to Montgomery County residents. OIC celebrated it’s 50th year in the community in 2015.

We are thrilled to be part of Montgomery County OIC and look forward to continuing that mission in 2016.

Anyone interested in volunteering should email sashe@montcooic.org with your name and contact information.

About The Norristown Project

The Norristown Project (TNP) is a volunteer-based organization located in Norristown, Pennsylvania. The program was created by life-long resident Shae Ashe who was fed up with all the complaints and negative stories coming from a town he takes pride in. To address the problems Norristown faces, Shae became proactive by coming up with ways to fix those problems with a smile on his face and with volunteers who shared the same passion. The project launched as a campaign on Indiegogo, and then by May of 2013, the first community project was hosted. Today, TNP focuses on community cleanup, development, engagement, and event management.
