National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community.
Don’t Throw Your Trash Where the Fish Splash
By NHT Sustainability Manager Kathleen Berube
Few of us routinely think about our personal actions and the quality of our watershed. Why would we? We’re all busy, wrapped up in our daily lives. We don’t consider the impact of the bottle we saw on the ground, the trash that blew by or the soap we used to wash our car. Even though we may not be aware, our actions have a tremendous impact on the quality of stormwater. Many seemingly benign actions have a very real detrimental effect on aquatic ecosystems. Changing our behaviors is not hard, but sometimes we need a little reminder.
In honor of National Heart Month, each Mrs. Philippines resident donated one can of food. They put a heart on each can, and we called it “Canned Food with a Heart.”
We took the canned food to Oxon Hill United Methodist Church and donated them for the community. The residents were very happy with this successful program!
Residents at Wingler House enjoyed a holiday time together in song.
Residents and staff at Mrs. Philippines Home for Senior Citizens enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving lunch and were gifted Thanksgiving baskets provided by area organizations.
