OneMain Financial hosted another Made on Main Street event Sunday, September 9, with a family-friendly block party celebrating the upcoming beautification project in Prosser, WA.
The Historic Downtown Prosser Association was one of seven organizations across the country to receive a $25,000 community action grant to help revitalize local communities. The grant will be used to create a clean, unified look in the town’s historic city center by positioning new trash receptacles and planters filled with native perennial plants and flowers throughout the town’s streets.
Members of the community enjoy the free, family-friendly event.
To kick off the project, OneMain sponsored a free, family-friendly event where 300 guests enjoyed complimentary food, live music, games, crafts and local artisanal vendors. In addition to the festival, there was a large-scale volunteer initiative where guests were able to help clean and prepare the area for the upcoming project, which is set to be completed next spring.

Jesalyn Cole, executive director of Historic Downtown Prosser, has been envisioning this project since 2016 and is thrilled to see it finally come to life: “Community members have put a lot of time and effort over the years into envisioning this project. We are excited to put the Made on Main Street grant funds to use in bringing this vision to fruition.”
The next Made on Main Street event is scheduled for Brunswick, Georgia.
