Philanthropy

Our 100+ year-old  neighborhood is made up of a diverse group of people fostering a strong sense of community and mutual respect.  Together we make charitable contributions from the proceeds of our annual house tours and from our civic association treasury; individually we proudly donate our own time, talents and treasure to various nonprofits as well as to school and church activities too numerous to cite.
