Each month, the Downtown Sykesville Connection dedicates its fundraising endeavors to a specific cause, project, or event. This targeted approach allows you to align your donation with your personal values, interests, and preferences, giving you the opportunity to contribute where it resonates most with you.
This month, the Downtown Sykesville Connection (DSC) is excited to announce a dynamic online fundraising campaign aimed at sponsoring a series of window paintings that will celebrate Black History Month. This vibrant visual tribute will be coordinated by the Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Committee, offering local businesses the chance to participate on a first-come, first-served basis.
With the funds raised, we will prioritize the beautification of our downtown windows with these expressive artworks while also considering the inclusion of additional Main Street inclusive activities over 2024, as the budget allows.
Beyond the window paintings, the funds will be allocated to a rich array of Black History Month initiatives. This includes staging an inspirational dance performance, awarding prizes for an upcoming art exhibition, and ensuring that our 2024 DSC events calendar is filled with activities that reflect our dedication to diversity and inclusion.
With your support, we can make these celebrations a cornerstone of our community's annual festivities, honoring Black Americans' past, present, and future contributions to the fabric of our town.
