2011_6_7MaxwellHouse.jpg Maxwell House's Drops of Good Project is currently holding a competition for a $50,000 renovation grant - and Chicago's own Austin Town Hall Park is not doing well. A community center on the West Side, Austin focuses on arts education and programming for residents, providing training in dance, music and theater as well as child daycare and senior care services. Want to help? All you have to do is click.

Maxwell House's competition allows visitors to vote for their favorite organization - the top 5 will get a $50,000 grant. Right now, Austin Town Hall Park is in last place - 10/10. We can do better than that! Plus, anyone who clicks gets a $1 coupon for a Maxwell House product - perhaps not a huge incentive to the coffee snobs, but at least you'll be doing some good. Voting closes next Friday, June 17th, so vote today!
