QVNA to the Rescue!

Community service is at the heart of what we do.  In addition to our many services to Queen Village residents, we’re proud to have:

  1. Reunited a set of house keys with their owner after we read they were stolen in a home burglary.  A QVNA volunteer brought us the keys, we contacted the homeowner who reported them missing, and fortunately they were hers.
  2. Rescued an unopened 14-lb Amazon package “delivered” to a street corner. We kept the package safe until its owner claimed it.
  3. Found two abandoned vintage mink coats still with sales tags and in great condition, and turned them in to the South Street Police Mini Station. (Fingers crossed that their rightful shop owner is found!) 

These are just three recent examples of what QVNA’s staff does for you.

Congrats Community Grant Winners!

Four 2018 Community Grant Award recipients were announced by QVNA President Eleanor Ingersoll at the December 13th Holiday Party. A total of $10,000 was awarded.

The Geography Lady was awarded $400 for an intergenerational geography program.

Fleisher Art Memorial was awarded $1,000 for a teaching assistant to pick-up students participating in its after-school program at Nebinger for their return to home to Courtyard.

Friends of Nebinger was awarded $2,000 for Chromebooks for use by students.

Beck Park was awarded $6,600 for new sidewalks and masonry repair.

Grant award decisions were based on the degree to which the proposed project meets a community need, the clarity of the project description, budget detail that reflects well-defined needs and reasonable costs, and the capacity of the applicant organization to complete the project within one year.

A sincere thanks to ALL GRANT APPLICANTS! QVNA is proud of good work being done to improve the quality of life here in Queen Village.
