Come Help your Neighbors on Good Neighbor Day

Sunday, September 24 is National Good Neighbor Day and the second day of Rosh Hashanah.

If you are not in shul, I ask you to help out with a project jointly cosponsored by Neighborhood Council 7 and Neighborhood Housing Service of Great Falls. For the day, NHS has identified a neighborhood house in need of repair. The owner suffers from a debilitating disease, and is unable to do this work herself.

On that Sunday, volunteers will paint the exterior front of the house, do some basic lawn work, repair some steps leading into the house and do some interior work. To me, this seems like a great way to be a "good neighbor," which I think is the real spirit behind National Good Neighbor Day.

If you can help, please email Sheila Rice at nhs@nhsgf.org to volunteer your time.
