Washington Grove residents have been responding to a variety of needs using the Washington Grove Cares (WGC) website (washingtongrovecares.org). Recent examples include providing meals for families under stress, occasional dog walking, and identifying walking companions. Think about WGC to help fill other kinds of needs as well: when you need a ride to a medical appointment or to the local Metro station or library; help with solving a specific computer tech problem; or your pet needs feeding when you are out of town. WGC invites other sorts of ideas for building a neighborly community. Are you looking for neighbors to join you in a Spanish or French conversation group or a gardening group? Want to share tips on improving home safety to prevent falls? To find other like-minded neighbors, share your idea by describing it in the “Other kinds of requests form” on the “Make an Assistance Request” section of the WGC website.
