Make Gahanna Yours


A City Beautification and Pride Initiative established in March 2016, Make Gahanna Yours began as an idea we all share: citizen-volunteers and businesses working together to improve our history-rich community. The purpose of the group is to identify and implement projects that promote a high quality of life in the City of Gahanna by beautifying the community and creating family-friendly volunteer opportunities. Make Gahanna Yours is a 501 (c) (3), Non-profit community organization that invests 100% of all funds in local Gahanna projects and is run by an all-volunteer board and membership.
