WHAT YOU CAN DO

We are currently looking for some wonderful humans that are willing to give monetary donations to GP3 in order to give life to the projects that our community really needs. Not only can you offer monetary support, but you can also donate your time, which is priceless and very much appreciated.

Community Events

We love how quiet our little town is most days, but sometimes it is great to have something going on for people to get together! We have done a few events including our taco dinner kickoff event in May 2022 and an organized garage sale event. GP3 has also helped welcome Meraki Market to town once a month for a fun morning of coffee & breakfast for our community. Since then, we have had a pasta night, community potluck, and community appreciation bbq!

Grandifying Grinnell

Grandifying Grinnell is GP3’s current project to give a facelift to our existing businesses and community spaces. We know how difficult it is to find the time and man power to do these things for our community, so GP3 has volunteered their time to do some painting around town. So far we have painted the CheckHers & His building, the Hometown Grocery building, and the bleachers and concession stand at the Middle School. Our most recent project has been the renovation of the interior of the grocery store!

Grinnell Community Market

Every third Saturday of the month throughout the spring, summer, and fall months, GP3 hosts a Community Market for our community to be able to shop from local vendors in one convenient location. This included jams, custom tees, decor, fresh florals, soaps, eggs, and more! We appreciate all of our community support at each and every market!
