NeighborWorks Week

Empowering Communities for Success

Every summer, NeighborWorks® America and its network of local organizations mobilize tens of thousands of volunteers, businesspeople, neighbors, friends, and local and national elected and civic leaders in a week of neighborhood change and awareness.As part of this national effort, NeighborWorks® Alaska coordinates a number of fun volunteer-driven activities, including our popular Paint the Town program, to get people involved, to connect them, and to make our communities better places to live work & play! 

This year’s new theme is “Empowering Communities for Success.” That’s what you do as an organization with the goal of enriching lives.

Some of this year’s highlights include: 

  • Paint the Town – Painting the home of deserving neighbors in the Russian Jack neighborhood
  • Landscaping and planting at Polar Bear Park
  • Projects in partnership with dozens of businesses and local organizations!
