Operation Our Town is a partnership lead by area business to fight drugs and violent crime in Blair County. Since organizing in 2007, Operation Our Town has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to local organizations and service providers for proven drug treatment, education and prevention programs. Grant monies have also been given to local law enforcement to further their efforts towards eliminating drugs and violent crime from our neighborhoods.
Significant progress has been made to “Take Back Our Neighborhoods.” But the battle is not over. In fact, in many ways, it has just begun. We must remain diligent. We must remain unified as citizens. As business leaders we must continue to provide the leadership and resources necessary to continue to protect our children, our neighborhoods and our quality of life. Our communities’ future depends on it. And we depend on people like you. Please consider how you may get involved to support efforts to “Keep it Going!”
