Project

LDANR - Project 1

The group project was to plan and host an open house to build awareness for the Learning Disabilities Association of Niagara Region (LDANR). Over time this plan was altered due to circumstantial limitations and shifted to the planning and implementation of an awareness campaign which included community involvement, online engagement, and donor packages in order to assist the organization with strategic goals.
