ISO donated items for women in need

Judith Katz
 

Neighbors:

I am looking for donations for "I Support The Girls", an organization working with homeless women, victims of domestic violence, sexual assault victims, sex trafficking, refugees and evacuees of natural disasters. This organization is headquartered here, with 50 affiliates in the US and internationally.
 
These women need gently used bras (including nursing bras) and feminine hygiene products. All of these donations help these women in distress to stand tall with dignity. 
 
Please consider making a donation. I would be happy to come by and pick up your donations.

CP&WP Village's Response to COVID-19

Frank Finamore
 


The Cleveland & Woodley Park Village is a neighborhood non-profit which provides primarily senior neighbors the opportunity to make new friends, connect and share social and educational experiences. We also offer helpful services by neighborhood volunteers that have been trained and undertake a background check.  

Out of an abundance of caution and because our members are generally older and at higher risk for the Coronoavirus (COVID-19), we are suspending any gatherings sponsored by the Village AS OF TODAY. The Village is, however, supporting our members in other ways, such as getting groceries and other needed supplies for them, helping with online ordering, driving them to doctor’s appointments, and checking in on them by telephone everyday.  

This is the time for the Village to come together to help those who may need greater support to stay safe.  Here are some things that the general community might consider:

  1. Become a volunteer. Our next volunteer training will be Monday, March 16 at 6:30 and we can situate ourselves to minimize any risk of gathering.
  2. Donate supplies. We know that there has been a global run on toilet paper, so if you really stocked up, perhaps you could share some with our members who may be running short. Our members may also need disposable gloves, tissues, Clorox or other disinfectant wipes, thermometers, and non-perishable food items, etc.
  3. Donate money so that we can purchase supplies for members in need. Online donations may be made at www.clevelandwoodleyparkvillage.org
  4. Be in touch with your senior neighbors. You can be helpful to them and connect them with the Village, if you think they would benefit. At a time when the CDC’s Dr. Anthony Fauci is promoting “social distancing” for this high-risk population, find ways to connect with them and to reduce their potential social isolation.


Thank you, in advance, for your support. Seniors in our community are so vitally important to our neighborhood social structure and the Village appreciates your support.

Hi everyone,

I have a small electrical appliance that stopped working and before turning to buying a new one, I'd like to try to get it fixed. Would anyone know of a place or someone is who able to fix it? it is an epilator, similar to this one: https://www.amazon.com/Braun-Silk-%C3%A9pil-Epilator-Electric-Packaging/dp/B0077PLO06/ref=sr_1_33?keywords=electrical+hair+remover&qid=1583855161&sr=8-33

Re: Zoo rule breakers today

Roslyn Beitler
 

A simple, and quick and dirty solution, would be to post the signs at the entrance Gates. There will  still be rule  breakers, but I bet not as many. Coordination counts! So, I hope more people will send their complaints to the zoo.

If you enter the zoo on the left side about a quarter of the way down, there's a pictorial sign with zoo rules. No dogs, except therapy dogs, and I just saw a guy walking 2 rambunctious pitbull puppies, no bikes or scooters, and I just avoided a child on a scooter. I'm at my wit's end with how to enjoy the zoo without the rule breakers. I've spoken several times to the folks at the education building to notify the powers-that-be, as well as the policeman at the entrance. It's almost as if they're inviting people to break the rules.
Any ideas?


Re: Zoo rule breakers today

Pamela Sutherland
 

As a dog owner/walker I am appalled at the insensitivity of people who take their dogs through the zoo. The trauma this must cause to animals for whom dogs are predators is enormous — beyond what trauma the animals already suffer behind bars. 
 
Definitely alert the zoo police if ever you see a dog (or other non-zoo animal) in the zoo.
 
Ugh.

I agree with you – I’ve also seen dogs being walked there more than once, as well as a kid riding a bike at high speed on a busy day. It seems as though the Zoo could use more security guards roaming around, or an easy way for visitors to report issues like this that might lead to a quick response.

Re: Zoo rule breakers today

Kathleen Baker
 

Hi Roz and Listserv neighbors —
 
As a former NZP zoo keeper, I can appreciate your frustration and it is one not lost on zoo staff. While I don’t really have a suggestion to offer, I will share that zoo employees who have radios notify the NZP Police whenever such “rule breakers” are observed. I believe once notified, the police do try to assist in correcting the situation, but are often unable to track down the person(s) in question. I would continue to report what you see to zoo staff as staff are often behind the scenes and unaware of the infractions occurring in public areas.
