Westview Calendar of Events

Special Request – Neighbors to Support a Local Classroom

Coordinator: Ayana Gabriel

The WCO has adopted a local classroom, Ms. Hunter’s 6th grade class, at KIPP STRIVE Academy.  This is a perfect opportunity to spend time with children in the neighborhood.    We are looking for neighbors who can spend as little as 30 minutes speaking to the class about how you use reading in your everyday life.  We also need neighbors who are willing to help organize classroom books.  This is a GREAT activity for retired neighbors, so if you know any please mention it to them!

Special Request – Help Paint Elderly Neighbor’s Homes

Coordinator: Ayana Gabriel

The local non-profit, House Proud, spends time fixing up the homes of elderly neighbors in need.  Our local representative, Jonathan Kidwell, has asked if there are any neighbors who can help paint on higher parts of a local neighbor’s home. “Higher parts” are areas that require a person to be comfortable with a 24’ ladder.  So if you aren’t scared of heights and have some time, let us know!

September 11 – Back to School!

8:30 – 11:30 am

KIPP STRIVE Academy, 1444 Lucile Ave

Please come out to clean-up trash and debris from our neighborhood.  For a second year we are partnering with KIPP STRIVE.  Adults are needed to help haul heavy trash, and mow vacant/empty lawns.  We also need a neighbor who is willing to coordinate this event.

November – Thanksgiving Basket

Day/Time TBD

Coordinator: Mary Green

We will be creating thanksgiving baskets to give to needy families in the neighborhood.  We will also host a volunteer day at Hosea Feed The Hungry and Homeless located less than 5 minutes from our neighborhood.  Every year this organization feeds 50,000 people at their annual Thanksgiving Event, and many more throughout the year.
