Year of Boulevard 2013 partner list tops 50

From “40 Girls and Some Shoes” to Zaxby’s

We all know that it takes a village etc. etc.

And to that end, one of the major strategies of Year of Boulevard has been finding partner organizations to work with. In its second month, YOB 2013 has more than fifty returning and new partners, from 40 Girls and Some Shoes (a nonprofit that distributes footwear to the needy) to Zaxby’s (opening a Ponce de Leon Avenue location this year.)

Here’s the roster. I’ll be profiling some of the organizations over the coming months.
