There are just a few days left to submit your neighborhood enhancement project for Umpqua Bank’s “Build Your Block Challenge.” The bank will donate $10,000 and the volunteer power to make the winning project happen.
You can submit your idea by going to Umpqua’s Facebook page and clicking on the “Build Your Block” link. Submissions will be accepted through Friday, then the community will vote on the projects from March 12th through the end of the month. The winning project will be announced on April 2.
Past winning projects include the addition of community gardens, an eco-friendly kids play area, and outdoor building enhancements through the addition of a mural painted by local elementary students. (Disclosure: Umpqua Bank is a sponsor of Queen Anne View.)
