August Campaign Report
Posted by Alix Nunan on October 19, 2009
Thanks to everyone who helped out with the during the month of August! The Neighbors Campaign started energetically: we knocked on 1,157 doors for a total of 214 one-on-one conversations. These residents come from at least 38 different countries, with the largest group—no less than 45—coming from El Salvador. During door knocking, the most common concerns residents discussed were employment (in almost 30% of all conversations) and health care (16%). Door knocks were conducted predominantly in Wheaton, where we also held our most popular Neighbors Exchange yet–58 residents and 8 Resource Partners participated. Although there was no Neighbors Exchange in Gaithersburg, door knockers referred residents to the local Neighborhood Service Center. In Long Branch, we continued to plan for our October Kick-off.
Keep up the good work, everyone. We’re over a quarter of the way to our Wheaton goal already!
