2017 Holiday Event at Family Forward (FRC)

KHNA is super excited to again have their Holiday event at Family Forward (they used to be called the Family Resource Center). Our event will be Thursday December 14th at 6pm, at the FF building located at Fyler & Kingshighway. We’ll wrap gifts for the kids, help decorate their facility, and have some light snacks.

What can you bring to donate to the cause?
Feel free to bring a NEW gift that can be wrapped and given to the kids they support – but don’t feel obligated. They already have tons of gifts, and what they need most from us is the wrapping. If you do want to bring a gift they especially need books for teens, or baby board books, since they run out of those first. Stuffed animals are great too. They also need wrapping paper and gift wrapping supplies. They go through a lot of it!

Want to know more about Family Forward?
Their mission is to give kids a chance at a better life by preventing and treating all forms of child abuse and neglect by strengthening families through family-centered therapeutic, educational, and support services. Visit their website for more info.

National Night Out 2017

National Night Out is this Tuesday 8/1!

What is National Night Out?
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.

In other words, it’s a night to get together with your neighbors and take a stand for your neighborhood. A stand against crime, a stand for your community. It’s a block party with a cause!

Join up with the block party closest to you!
Or, come join the 5000 Block of Parker at Brannon. They will be out from 6p-10p. All are welcome!
