Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park – About the Organization
If you’re looking for a way to build friendships and get involved this summer, join Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park!
Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park (NHN-CP) is part of a national Senior Village movement of grassroots, volunteer-driven community organizations. NHN-CP is a cohort of volunteers who act as a safety net for aging residents and people with disabilities, to allow them to stay in their homes for as long as they like. Volunteers do this by helping members with transportation, household and yard chores, small home repairs, friendly visits and phone check-ins, and technology assistance. These are everyday activities that may have become difficult due to physical or cognitive limitations.
Summer Seniors Coffee Social
This summer, Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park (NHN-CP) is teaming up with Proteus Brews/Proteus Bicycles to offer a Summer Seniors Coffee Social every Thursday morning from 9:30-10:30 AM. No registration is required, all you need to do is show up when you can. NHN-CP encourages you to bring your friends and neighbors! Everyone is welcome; no proof of age is necessary.
The owners very generously offer a 15% discount for all drinks, pastries, and ice cream bought between 9:30-10:30 (view their menu here). The shop has a nice outside eating area in the shade and has tables in the cool air conditioned inside. There is a voluntary mask-wearing policy.
Proteus is located at 9827 Rhode Island Ave, in the Hollywood Shopping Center. The shopping center has a large parking lot and there is a bus stop on Rhode Island Avenue just above the shopping center. Neighbors Helping Neighbors’ volunteers can also offer rides, for those who would prefer to travel this way. If you would like a ride, please contact NHN-CP’s Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-222-3434.
Membership is free; to join, contact Coordinator, Paula Greene, at 301-222-3434 or by email to be added to the list and to request assistance.
