Each year we celebrate NeighborWorks Week. A national initiative of “neighbors helping neighbors.” While we’re not gathering in person this year, we are more committed than ever to helping each other out and celebrating the true power affordable housing has to enrich neighborhood life and support healthy communities.

2. #Mask4U Challenge
Join the #Mask4U Challenge
The science is clear on this one. We know that the safest way to protect ourselves and those around us from COVID-19 is to mask up when we can’t safely stay 6 feet away from each other.
NeighborWorks Week is a celebration of “neighbors helping neighbors.” At this time, we believe wearing a mask is a selfless sign of doing just that.
In honor of NeighborWorks Week 2020, we’re hosting a #Mask4U Challenge. Share with us who you Mask Up for and be entered to win a $50 giftcard to a local business.
- Take a photo of yourself in your favorite face mask
- Post it to social media using the hashtags #Mask4U and #NWWeek between now and July 10th
- Add a comment about who you Mask up for
Two posters will be selected at random to receive a $50 gift card to a local restaurant.
