Camden wants you to know that there are good things going on in the often troubled city. That’s the goal of their new initiative, the “Goodness Project.”

Goodnessproject.org was born when various organizations throughout Camden got together and decided to shine a light on all the encouraging things happening around the city in “hopes to inspire others through goodness.”
