Good Deed of the Day

Remind your elderly neighbors to collect their tax rebates! The number one zip code in DC for unclaimed payments is 20011 – Petworth, with almost 1500 total possible outstanding payment opportunities. The total amount unclaimed for this zip is $437,700.

From a reader:

“Remember those tax rebate checks we all were entitled to get earlier this year? A national non-profit organization (Center on Budget and Policy Priorities) has issued a report listing the number of unclaimed economic stimulus checks by State (and DC) and zip code. Out of curiousity, I looked it up. Interestingly, the number one zip code in DC for unclaimed payments is 20011 – Petworth, with almost 1500 total possible outstanding payment opportunities.. The total amount unclaimed for this zip is $437,700. The link for this is: http://www.cbpp.org/states/7-28-08stim-fact-dc.pdf

Many of those thought not to have filed are seniors, the disabled and disabled veterans. The deadline to claim the money is October 15, and the IRS commissioner is calling on folks to inquire with friends, family and neighbors to ensure that they have filed for the money they are entitled to. So, perhaps in the vein of today’s “looking out for your neighbor/fellow citizen” post, maybe you can urge readers to check with their neighbors, particularly the elderly, and make sure they have applied for this.”

The Potomac Roasting Company is stocked with excellent coffee to meet almost any palate. But that’s not the only good news. We now offer free shipping for orders over $35.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

Our newest coffee comes from Mbozi, Tanzania. We secured a shipment just before this small batch of delicious beans sold out. In Swahili, Usawa means balance and Kahawa means coffee. The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

We also received coffee shipments that were delayed following the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. That includes the most recent harvest of La Morena coffee beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. We have plenty in stock, so that you can stock up! Rounding out our specialty coffee choices are fresh roasts from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia and Peru.

Join local sketch comedy legends (in our own minds) Brick Penguin for an evening of live, dark, rip-roaring sketch comedy. See D.C.’s longest-running sketch comedy group do what they do best, when they’re not performing across the country in places such as the terrifying Philadelphia, the gooey Chicago, the M&M Store-y New York City, and the crunchy Seattle.

Now, our last show may or may not have mentioned Taylor Swift, and we may have gotten into some trouble from confused Swifties who thought they scored a $15 ticket to a Taylor Swift concert. So, to apologize and clear up any confusion, we’ve decided to dedicate another show to her. We promise she might or might not appear this time.
