Once again, members of Northwest Baltimore’s Glen community — as well as students from Cross County Elementary and Pikesville High schools — came out on Sunday morning and afternoon, Nov. 19, for the annual “Good Neighbor Day” event presented by CHAI, or Comprehensive Housing Assistance Inc., and Jewish Volunteer Connection.
More than 100 people turned out for two special projects. Activities included helping senior citizens in Northwest Baltimore winterize their residences (sealing windows, light yard work, etc.), as well as trash removal around Western Run Stream. Whole Foods of Mount Washington donated bottles of water for the occasion.
Both CHAI and JVC are agencies of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.
