Events serve as excellent avenues to commemorate our achievements and advancements with the community collectively. ProJeCt organizes various gatherings yearly to celebrate with our students, community members, and beneficiaries, fostering a sense of togetherness and shared accomplishment. Our events include:

Simply Savory is a community event where local restaurants, caterers, bakeries, wineries, and breweries come together for an evening of delight! In addition, we will have some amazing prizes in our silent auction donated by various community members!


Your support helps ProJeCt to continue providing essential services to thousands of local families who benefit from supplemental food, emergency support, and homelessness prevention, as well as adult and family literacy programs that prepare them for success in work, school, and life. Our services – all free of charge - are needed now, more than ever, as so many have had their lives disrupted and destabilized by the pandemic, and others continue to face the challenges of poverty.


Simply Savory is an excellent opportunity to enjoy a night out while supporting ProJeCt of Easton's mission of "Helping People Help Themselves."


Thank you to all of our supporters for making this year's Simply Savory a tremendous success! See you next year!

The annual Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is a way for individuals, businesses, and organizations to gather together in a healthy activity while raising funds for their charity.  ProJeCt of Easton has been a participating organization for more than a decade, and the funds raised by our supporters go directly to support the programs and assistance we offer to clients. 

Organizations, service clubs, families, and friends can form teams to compete for our Silver Sole Award annually to teams raising the most money for ProJeCt.  Individuals may also register to participate in the event.
