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!

Hit and Run and/or Stolen Car?

This morning a driver in a white Stratus with Virginia tags exited the alley behind West Virginia Avenue NE turned right onto Owen Place NE and rammed into a black BMW parked on the street. The black SUV was pushed on the sidewalk and into a tree. The driver fled the scene.

Neighbors who were outside and witnessed the crash called 911. It is likely that the white car may have been stolen and then abandoned after the crash. No one was injured in the accident.

MPD will be at the TNA regular August meeting tomorrow for a security update. Please join us and bring questions you may have for them regarding crime and crime prevention in the neighborhood. Also on the agenda are the Deputy Mayor for Greater Economic Opportunity and 405 Yoga (opening at FL Ave and W Va Ave). The meeting will start at 7 pm at the Trinidad Recreation Center on Childress Avenue NE.
