Neighborhood newsletter a collective project

The February edition of the Pleasant Plains Neighborhood Network News, itself a collaborative effort to "build an active, vibrant, compassionate and prosperous neighborhood that we will all be proud of", features several examples of collaborative, collective initiatives to improve the community.   One example is the story about the Georgia Avenue Community Development Task Force.   Another example is the article "How Society Impacts Our Youth. . . " by Courtney Steward (Mentoring Works2) and Del MCfadden (Columbia Heights/Shaw Family Support Collaborative).

The newsletter is produced with a small budget and distributed door-to-door to 1,300 residents and businesses by the youth of Mentoring Works2 and the ECAC.   Residents and businesses can help support this community newsletter in numerous ways.   Chek them out by going to this site to buy ad space or the ECAC to make a tax-deductible donation to the ECAC, noting that the donation is for the PPNN.
