Community Service

In October 2023, Center of the World was once again a Gold-level sponsor of Run to the Center of the World, which raised more than $4,000 for the New Troy Community Center.

Over the past 17 years, owners Terry and Lorraine together with Center of the World staff, have volunteered hundreds of hours of service for the Community Center, which provides an under-privileged community with a multitude of services: lending library, activities room with games, free food pantry, story hour, Little Free Library, pickleball, yoga, local history museum, playground, demonstration rain garden, winter coat drive, visits with Santa, free adult enrichment programs, and much more.

Owned, maintained and operated by the non-profit organization, Friends of New Troy, the Center receives no tax dollars, but has been supported since 2007 by fundraisers, donations, membership fees, and more recently, grants.

In 2022, Lorraine led the effort and wrote grants to completely renovate the Center's library and meeting room. The project was completed in May 2023.
