From Nico at our sister site UDistrictDaily
It’s time to meet your neighbors! Yeah, those people that live next door to you, across the street, and that nice person who always throws your paper up onto your porch on his morning walk with his dog…the one who’s name you don’t know.
You know that cool looking couple that passes by on their evening run, or that elderly woman always working in her garden rain or shine. This is your chance to put names to faces and create that community vibe you are always craving. This could even be your chance to find out who lives in that haunted looking house with the over grown blackberries!
The Small Sparks Fund provides matching dollars for neighborhood-initiated projects that promote community engagement.
