LOCATION: Chatham County, North Carolina
GRANTEE: Bynum Front Porch
When the owner of the Bynum General Store in Chatham County, North Carolina, retired, neighbors established a nonprofit organization, named it Bynum Front Porch and turned the popular gathering spot into a community center and performance space. When COVID-19 arrived, an AARP Community Challenge grant — and the power of high-speed internet – enabled the venue to livestream its storytelling workshops and musical events.
The AARP Community Challenge funds "quick-action" projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.
