Summer patio season is a great
excuse opportunity to host a Neighbor to Neighbor Rent Party!
It’s patio season, and if you need a great reason to gather your pals, then consider hosting a Rent Party as a fun way to make a local impact.
Rent parties began in Harlem during the 1920s as a way to help friends cover their rent during hard times. Friends would gather, a musician would entertain, and a hat would be passed. This same party concept can be used today to help local friends and neighbors. In fact, a typical rent party raises enough funds to help 2-3 local families!
Everything from a tea party to tailgater is fair game!
The benefit of hosting a Rent Party is that it’s your party – your theme, your schedule, your people, your fun! It’s also a great way to introduce your friends and acquaintances to a cause that you support. Donations of any size are welcomed and they go directly towards preventing homelessness for local families.
