We had a fantastic time celebrating the Community Services Foundation and So What Else’s Annual Summer Olympics earlier this month. This year’s event attracted around 500 DC children — including many residents of Brookland Manor! There were activities aplenty, including field games and soccer.
As a longtime supporter of the Community Services Foundation, MidCity understands the communities we serve thrive because of the people who call it home.
MidCity founder, Eugene F. Ford Sr., established the Community Services Foundation (CSF) as one of the first organizations to offer resident services programs at apartment buildings. Initially focused on DC youth, these programs grew over time to include teens, adults and seniors.
Today CSF serves over twenty communities across Washington, DC and Maryland. Their educational, cultural and recreational programs help instill in residents a sense of pride in their communities. They have positively impacted the lives of more than 17,000 residents to date.
MidCity continues to offer all kinds of support for the Community Services Foundation and the neighborhoods they represent, including a partnership with So What Else, who strengthens local communities through youth-focused programming.
Check out our photos from this year’s awesome event! We’re already looking forward to next year.
