Winter Wonder In NoMa

December 2020

The holidays are just around the corner, and this winter will be like none we’ve experienced before. As we continue to practice social distancing and limit travel to stay safe, it’s important we seek out ways to stay connected and lift each other’s spirits!

The NoMa BID is partnering with The h3 Project, Little Friends of Peace, The Father McKenna Center and Perry School to provide opportunities to help neighbors in need this holiday season. Please take a moment to see how you can serve or donate to these local groups:

> The h3 ProjectPurchase warm clothing and food for local persons experiencing homelessness.
> Little Friends of PeaceDonate to create Peace Circles for local children and families.
>The Father McKenna Center Volunteer in their food pantry or donate to help neighbors in need.
> Perry SchoolPurchase toys and games from wish lists created by local families.

And to help spread more holiday cheer, join our “Winter Wonder in NoMa” virtual celebrations on social media. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram to join our festive weekly online competitions as we share holiday memories, favorite traditions, ugly sweater designs and more games dreamed up by the creative geniuses at Brllnt and ArtJamz!
