Support for Trinidad School Kids

If you did not notice the youth in uniform today, public school students returned to the class room for the start of the 2015-2016 school year. As students begin their studies, our community looks to how we can help them succeed through after school programs, provide needed class room materials, and fund youth sports uniforms and programs. TNA has again joined forces with Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club (JVLHC) for a fundraiser to contribute to our school community. For the past several years TNA and JVLHC have collaborated to raise funds that have gone 100% back to the community. In past years we have raised as much as $4,000.00. This year we can set the bar higher and strive for $5,000.00 in contributions for our youth.

The fundraising event will be held on October 1st from 7 pm to 10 pm at 1103 Bladensburg Road NE. JVLHC and other businesses contribute food, drinks, and music. The $20 entry donation is used to fund programs that the schools and recreation centers request to support youth programming.

You can purchase a ticket to the event or make a donation on the website. All contributions are tax deductible as TNA is a 501(c)3 organization. The link to EventBrite is here. If you have any questions about the fundraiser, please contact us at trinidadneighborhood@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you at the JVLHC Youth Programs fundraiser and thank you in advance for your support to our youth programs!

Jimmy Valentine’s 6th Annual Fundraiser for Youth: Thursday, October 3

For the past 5 years, local business Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club has raised funds to support Webb-Wheatley’s after school programs. The funds raised have made it possible to engage our youth in positive and productive activities and projects, like a play adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, a Halloween party with MPD, the creation of a yearbook by and for the students, kites for “high-flying kite day,” fashion and talent shows with prizes, field trips, and a host of other art and craft supplies that create teaching and learning opportunities.

JVLHC Fundraiser 6

This year’s fundraiser will benefit youth activities throughout the community, and it is scheduled for Thursday, October 3, 6:00-9:00 pm at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club, 1103 Bladensburg Rd. NE. Jimmy V’s will offer 3 free drink tickets to each person donating $20 or more.

We’ll be able to accept cash and checks (and, we hope, credit cards) at the door. Checks can be made payable to Trinidad Neighborhood Association, with “JVLHC Fundraiser 6” in the memo.

For those unable to attend, please consider donating via TNA’s dedicated PayPal link. For those who prefer to donate by credit card in advance of the fundraiser, you can donate via PayPal and bring your receipt to the door:

TNA serves as the fiduciary agent for the fundraiser – by raising funds through TNA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Jimmy Valentine’s and TNA are able to buy and directly donate items as and when needed. This means 100% of the money raised benefits the kids in our neighborhood.
