WHO WE ARE
We are a 100% Volunteer Organization that partners with community residents, businesses and government agencies to move our vision forward. Every dollar raised goes directly into the project.
Friends of Granger Paths, Inc is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Friends of Granger Paths advocates for the development of community-wide multiuse paths and educates and the public about the health, community building, and environmental benefits of these amenities. Friends of Granger Paths envisions a community that is multi-modal, where drivers respect pedestrians, runners, bicyclists, and where any member of the community including children can walk safely to their destination. Friends of Granger Paths values safe alternative means of transportation for the use of all, a public realm that welcomes people of all ages and physical abilities, connectivity between neighborhoods and subdivisions, vital downtown and neighborhood areas and public spaces that promote human interaction.
WHAT WE DO
Our vision is to bring about a non-motorized 21-mile system of safe, multi-use paths in Granger that will link neighborhoods with the library, schools, ball fields, churches, stores, and other points of interest in our community.
Multi-use paths promote a lifestyle that is healthy, environmentally friendly, creates a connected community and improves the value of our homes. Our hope is that this system will continue to connect the Granger community to Mishawaka, South Bend, Notre Dame, Elkhart and Michigan.
