Company Will Host A Free, Family-Friendly Block Party to Celebrate
Upcoming Project

OneMain Financial announced today that it will be hosting a "Made on
Main Street" event on Sunday, September 9, 2018, to celebrate the
$25,000 grant awarded to the Historic Downtown Prosser Association. The
organization is using this money to create a clean, unified look in
Prosser's historic downtown by positioning new trash receptacles and
planters throughout the streets.

"Made on Main Street," a partnership between OneMain Financial and Main
Street America, provides community action grants for innovative
neighborhood transformation projects across the country. Six additional
grants have been awarded to organizations across the nation.

"We're thrilled to award this grant to the Historic Downtown Prosser
Association. They have shown so much love for and pride in their city,
and we're excited to help them highlight their historic downtown
center," said OneMain Financial Chief Marketing Officer Kim Wijkstrom.
"At OneMain Financial, we believe individuals thrive when communities
thrive and feel this project aligns with that vision."

Since 2016, the Historic Prosser Association has been leading the
community in an extensive visioning project to identify key locations in
need of improvement. Creating a beautiful city center reflecting the
unique local history became the community's top priority. With the help
of OneMain Financial, volunteers will replace old trash cans and
planters with 10 new trash receptacles, 28 pole brackets to support
signage and flower baskets, and 25 street planters filled with native
perennial plants. A large-scale volunteer weekend is scheduled to take
place in Prosser on September 8 and 9 to help clean and
prepare the area for the upcoming project, which is set to be completed
in Spring 2019.

"Community members have put a lot of time and effort over the years into
envisioning this project," said Historic Downtown Prosser Association
Executive Director Jesalyn Cole. "We are excited to put the Made on Main
Street grant funds to use in bringing this vision to fruition through
downtown beautification projects."

OneMain Financial will be hosting a free, family-friendly block party to
celebrate the grant award and the upcoming restoration project. The
September 9 event will be held at 715 6th Street in downtown
Prosser, from 2 to 5 p.m. Festivities will include complimentary food,
games, crafts, artisan vendors and much more. "Made on Main Street" is
free, and all community members are invited to attend. For more
