JP Porchfest Adding Resource Mobilization Fair to Feature Nonprofit Organizations

The 4th Annual Jamaica Plain Porchfest will take place on July 8 and like previous years, a new element is being added — a Resource Mobilization Fair. At the fair local nonprofit organizations will be able inform people about important issues of concern, including housing, climate change and more.
