The final CHCA meeting of 2012 takes place tonight (Tuesday) at 7:30pm at the Gospel Tabernacle Church (725 Franklin Avenue). CHCA meetings are always a great way to connect with neighbors in the service of building community along the Avenue, but tonight's meeting is extra-special, in two ways.
First, CHCA members are contributing to two holiday drives to help those in need here in Crown Heights. At the meeting, they will be collecting non-perishable food, toiletries, and linens (specifically twin sheets, blankets, and towels) for Kianga House, a transitional family shelter located in Crow Hill, as well as warm men's clothing for those who stay at the Bedford-Atlantic Armory. Bring your donations to the meeting!
Secondly, for those looking for a little more neighborly holiday chatter, the Crown Inn will be generously providing $3 drinks (one apiece) to attendees once the meeting has been adjourned. If you haven't been to a CHCA meeting yet, tomorrow's the day to do it!
