While you are out shopping this holiday season, please remember those in our city that are less fortunate. Urban Neighbors will be collecting items for City Rescue Mission during at our December social. The most needed items are new packages of socks and undergarments for men, women, and children. Also, gift cards for Target or Walmart are also appreciated.
 
The City Rescue Mission was founded in 1960 by a group of businessmen concerned about helping the transient population in downtown Oklahoma City. From their location at 800 West California Avenue, the City Rescue Mission has served more than 2 million meals and provided 172,000 nights of shelter in 2015. 
 
To learn more about City Rescue Mission, donate or find volunteer opportunities, please visit their website at www.cityrescue.org.

Mark your calendar... National Neighbors Night Out is Tuesday September 15th and we are having our inaugural UN Annual Dawg Crawl.  Please join your fellow UN members and downtown neighbors for a fun filled night of puppy play and poop scooping at the Myriad Gardens Dog Park from 5:30 to 7:30p.  No dog?  No problem.  Just walk your dawgs over and socialize with your fellow neighbors as we enjoy a warm summer night outside!
 
 
 
As any member knows, not only is our annual membership dues very very low, but the organization has been inconsistent about sending out invoices on an annual basis allowing many members to unknowingly be inactivated.  However, this is about to change.  Urban Neighbors is going to a subscription model for payment of dues. Beginning the next time you pay your dues, we will  automatically charge your credit card annually until given instructions that you would like to withdraw your membership.  To end your membership with Urban Neighbors, simply send a note to any board member, send a note to board@urbanneighbors.org, or click on the paypal button on our website.  But, as there is no better value than an UN membership, why would anyone ever want to leave?!
 

 
 
If improving OKC's walkability and bikeability are concerns of yours (and why wouldn't they be), PLEASE consider completing the city's survey:

Have you seen our garden lately?  It is looking awesome!  However, it still requires some work to maintain.  Come join us for another garden work (fun) day, Saturday August 22 from 8a-11a.  If you have some, we need mulch!  We will also be placing a brick path to the seating area and turning the compost bins.  It sounds like work, but with good friends and neighbors it is really much fun.  Come join us!!!
