Holiday Heater Meals For The Homeless Update

As most of you know, for this year's holiday drive, the DRC asked its members for donations to provide Heater Meals for the homeless (similar to the military ready-to-eat meals that are self-contained, have a long shelf life, include a heater and can be used at any time).

Thanks to your usual generosity, we collected more than $1400, which the DRC will use to buy cases of meals and give them to Chico Lockhart and Derrick Chance of the DCI Outreach program. They, in turn, will offer them to the homeless as part of the work they do to encourage the homeless to access services that can help them get their lives back on track.

On behalf of the DRC Board, I can't thank you all enough for helping us to help others this holiday season.

Thank you all - and happy holidays!

DRC President

Our Downtown on the Move

Downtown Cincinnati is now home to over 6,000 residents, with more arriving every month as new condos and apartment homes are completed. The Downtown Residents Council works to develop a community atmosphere, conducts projects to improve the quality of life, and voices concerns of residents at City Hall.

We work closely with the Police Department on safety issues and Downtown Cincinnati Inc. and 3CDC on development and promotion efforts.

Help Us Stop Graffiti! Call it in! If you see graffiti on a building, sidewalk, rack, etc. please help us get rid of it ASAP. The longer graffiti stays up, the greater the invitation for more. Please contact DCI Ambassador Manager Sarah Sundrup when you see graffiti. Sarah will dispatch a team to photograph it, report it to the police and remove it. Sarah's number is 513-446-8549.

Ambassador Hotline. To contact a DCI Safe and Clean Ambassador, call their hotline at: 513-623-3429. In an emergency, always call 911.
