NCCF Community Day

Sunday, October 21, Noon-3 PM

The National Center for Children and Families (NCCF) provides shelter, food, clothing, and counselling for homeless families in our community and works to create total, healthy living environments and to improve the quality of their lives.

This shelter is in our backyard. Each year BJC joins the community to help spruce up the Center by tackling a range of chores on the nearby NCCF campus, particularly landscaping, sorting, painting, etc. and to work and play side-by-side with the residents. Please join us on Sunday, October 21 for our annual social action event – Community Day! Click here for all of the details of this great community activity. This event is open to all ages, — a great opportunity for families to work together.

Also, we’ll be looking for volunteers to help NCCF with its Harvest Fall Fest on October 29th from 6-9 PM.

Questions about NCCF and volunteering – please get in touch with Amy Shapiro

Great Names – Gene Weingarten

Gene Weingarten is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist known for both his serious and humorous work. Weingarten’s column, Below the Beltway, is published weekly in the Washington Post Magazine and syndicated nationally by The Washington Post Writers Group, which also syndicates Barney & Clyde, a comic strip he co-authors. He is the former editor of the Miami Herald‘s Sunday magazine, during which time he hired Dave Barry, giving one of America’s best known humor columnists his big break. His newest [children’s, sort of] book, Me and Dog, addresses a kid, a dog and atheism in an incredible way.  Gene’s own edit on Wikipedia: “A college dropout, he was somehow awarded a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University.”  (Note: his illustrator, Eric Shansby, may join Gene and draw while he speaks!)
