The Main Project is a community initiative empowering youth with opportunities locally. With a hands on approach, they are determined to helps those in need, especially this Thanksgiving. They aim to provide families with resources and support to help individuals reach their goals.

Currently, the Main Project is planning a food drive. This event is in partnership with the Racine Police Department and Orchestrating Good. Additionally, members of the community are welcome to participate in the donation drive.
