The nonprofit Port Townsend Main Street Program is teaming up with Give Jefferson to raise funds for more bistro style tables and chairs for the downtown and uptown historic districts to increase the pedestrian-friendliness of Port Townsend. The online campaign to raise these funds runs from Oct. 1–31, 2018. You can designate a donation specifically for this project via the online Give Jefferson online catalog at www.givejefferson.org.

“Main Street Tables and Chairs” are a colorful pedestrian amenity which create community and  conversation with movable street furniture. The goal to bring more energy to the Cotton Building Plaza, the Pope Marine Plaza, the Tyler Street Plaza, the Bell Tower Plaza, the Haller Fountain and the new Jefferson Street sidewalk extension with 50 more sets of Emu brand street furniture split between these areas.

Gifts of $10, $100, or $1000 or more will enhance our community. All donations are tax deductible.  Questions? Learn more about the “Give Jefferson” Campaign at www.givejefferson.org. More information is also available on the Port Townsend Main Street Program Facebook page.
