  • Do it for your community
    A group of community volunteers in College Corner recently gifted their local Package Store with a face lift. The building was badly in need of paint and minor repairs. Kara Hornung drove by the Package store on Brookville Pike every day and decided the fading paint could use an update. She recruited Erin Maddock to help. Maddock approached the owners of the store for permission to paint the building, at no cost to them. Hornung started a GoFundMe page and the community supported her cause, quickly exceeding her $2,500 goal by $500.
