Support the Call Box Restoration

By Linda Brooks and Ross Schipper


We are at almost 80 percent of our goal thanks to the generosity of nearly a third of our BCA members plus a few other Burleith friends! Donations to the Burleith call box restoration project are up from just over 70 percent as reported last month. The willingness of Burleith’s citizens to open their wallets in support of this beautification effort is heartwarming.

Don’t be left out. Donate to this exciting project and help us meet our goal of restoring all five call boxes (with a target of completing two by the Burleith picnic in June). If you haven’t already contributed (or would like to give more):

• donate online, or

• send a check made payable to the Burleith Community Fund (BCF) along with the donation form to PO Box 32262, Calvert Station, 2336 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20007.

The BCF has 501(c)(3) status and all donations are tax-deductible.

More information about the project, including photos and a link to a list of current donors, is available in the January and February 2015 “What’s Up” website posts.
