Emergence Community Arts Collective Gets Burglarized, Help Out if You Can


Tina wrote about this great organization, located at 733 Euclid Street, NW, back in September ’08. It seems they’ve had a “minor setback” (from an email):

“We had a break-in last Friday evening which has left me without a laptop or backup drive (lesson learned – don’t keep them together). There were a number of valuables taken, but nothing that really was at the heart of what we do, and for that I am grateful.

Between the losses and funds needed to secure the doors, we will have about $2,000 worth of unexpected expenses. If you would like to help out with a tax-deductible donation, we would greatly appreciate it. You can donate online at http://www.ecacollective.  Alternatively, if you would like to donate any of the following items, please contact me at (202) 462-2285.

Laptop Computer
Backup Hard Drive
Digital Camera
Digital Audio Recorder
Cordless Phone set
Power Tools (drill, jigsaw, sander)

Fortunately, the list of things that weren’t taken is much longer. Many thanks to Jo Strowder and Dr. Ernest Quimby who jumped in with last minute loaner equipment so we wouldn’t have to cancel our children’s Summer Heritage Program today, and to those who have been helping me reconstruct the last six months.

Your patience is greatly appreciated.

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
