NeighborWorks Week

NeighborWorks Week 2012

OCC volunteers joined more than 30 representatives from NeighborWorks America's board agencies at this year's NeighborWorks Week volunteer event held in Washington, D.C.'s Ivy City neighborhood in early June. The volunteers conducted a street-by-street cleanup and helped dig the foundation for new housing being developed by Manna, the local nonprofit NeighborWorks affiliate.

NeighborWorks Week 2011

In 2011, OCC volunteers helped landscape a 15-unit condominium project in Northwest Washington, D.C., as part of the annual NeighborWorks Week, sponsored by the nonprofit NeighborWorks America. The event was organized with the help of Manna, a local NeighborWorks affiliate and owner/developer of the condominium complex. Manna is one of Washington's oldest and most successful nonprofit developers of affordable housing.
