This summer, neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park (NHN-CP) is teaming up with Proteus Brews/Proteus Bicycles to offer a Summer Seniors Coffee Social every Thursday morning from 9:30-10:30 AM. All you need to do is show up when you can. And, please bring along your friends and neighbors! Everyone is welcome; we won’t be asking for proof of age.
Proteus is located at 9827 Rhode Island Ave, in the Hollywood shopping center where the MOMs is also located. The shopping center has a large parking lot and there is a bus stop on Rhode Island Avenue just above the shopping center. Neighbors Helping Neighbors’ volunteers can also offer rides, for those who would prefer to travel this way.
The owners will very generously offer a 15% discount for all drinks, pastries, and ice cream bought between 9:30-10:30! (Here’s the menu.) The shop has a nice outside eating area in the shade and has tables in the cool air conditioned inside. There is a voluntary mask-wearing policy.
If you would like a ride, please contact NHN-CP’s Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-222-3434.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park (NHN-CP) offers a community of volunteers who act as a safety net for our aging residents and people with disabilities, to allow them to stay in their homes for as long as they like. Volunteers do this by helping members with transportation, household and yard chores, small home repairs, friendly visits and phone check-ins, and technology assistance. These are everyday activities that may have become difficult due to physical or cognitive limitations.
NHN-CP is part of a national Senior Village movement of grassroots, volunteer-driven community organizations. We don’t replace or duplicate government services or family assistance, but instead seek to provide a resource when those avenues of assistance are not available.
Membership is free; contact the NHN Coordinator, Paula Greene, at 301-222-3434 or by email to be added to the list and to request assistance.
Signing up to volunteer is simple: Fill out a brief form available on the NHN website, and they will be in touch soon!
