Neighbor Helping Neighbor, Block by Block!

“In a disaster, your most immediate sources of help are the neighbors living around you.”  (MYN)

MWJN President, Pierre Landry, welcomes neighbors to the second annual “Potluck in the Park” at Cleland Bicentenniel Park on Saturday,  June 16, 2018 (Pierre’s birthday!)

Thanks to everyone who came out for the 3rd Annual MWJN Potluck in the Park on Saturday, June 15. We had great turnout with a lot of familiar faces and many new neighbors too. Lots of kids!! It was nice to see the next generation of Mt. Washington Jessica! We had a terrific eclectic array of food that included vegan and gluten free options.

Our nonprofit  got things started with  tables and chairs, a few canopies and paper plates/plastic-ware. We also obtained a portable toilet. And, music was provided by our trusty neighbor and father of twins,  Drew of One Shot DJs!

MWJN Supports Work Parties, Workshops, Events & Drills

MWJN supports our community with disaster preparedness,  beautification and safety and welfare through educational events, exercises, improvement projects, and other activities that benefit our community.

We have organized small groups of neighbors to share information and create a plan for the first hour after a disaster. Thirteen blocks have already participated in the 2 1/2 hour MYN workshop.

For 2018 we are focusing on  workshops for additional blocks within the Mt. Washington Jessica Neighborhood Boundaries. Check out our Map Your Neighborhood page and contact us to get your block prepared.
