New Haven Begins New Tradition Honoring Patriot Day

The City of New Haven is creating a new partnership with NeighborLink Fort Wayne to create a day of service. On September 11, 2020 we will launch Patriot Day, a day of giving, kindness and caring. NeighborLink Fort Wayne is a non-profit organization that supports the community by connecting volunteers with individuals who need help with home repair projects.

The New Haven team will work with NeighborLink to identify projects in the New Haven community. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we are seeking exterior projects that can be completed in one day. To be considered for this year’s Patriot Day, projects must be submitted by Sunday, August 16, 2020 on the NeighborLink website at Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide any guarantee that it will be selected.

We encourage New Haven community members and businesses to join Mayor McMichael and the Senior Staff for this day of service. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up on the NeighborLink website at When you register to volunteer, please reference New Haven Patriot Day in the message line.

NeighborLink Fort Wayne’s mission is to provide practical, neighbor-to-neighbor expressions of God’s love. Volunteers help hundreds of senior citizens, people with disabilities, low-income families, and people facing life’s circumstances with tangible home repair projects every year. It’s NeighborLink’s desire to make as many connections as possible and support the activity the best we can by providing training, resources, and connecting neighbors to other volunteers when their skills fall short of the task at hand. NeighborLink Fort Wayne volunteers completed 1,394 projects in 2019. For more information, or to donate or volunteer, visit or call 260.209.0074.

New Haven is a vibrant community of approximately 16000 people in Eastern Allen County. New Haven prides itself as a community that serves. The McMichael administration is focused on making New Haven the best place to live, work, play, run a business or visit in Northeast Indiana.
