Show Your Support for UES Schools!

EveryBlock.com is a website that follows neighborhood news and allows its visitors to connect with neighbors in 16 U.S. cities.  Their goal is to help its residents be better neighbors, by providing frequently updated neighborhood news, plus tools to have meaningful conversations with neighbors.  All its users have to do is create an account and choose which places you'd like to follow (i.e. home and/ or workplace). This will create a custom EveryBlock homepage, updated throughout the day, will show you what's been happening near your followed places, plus what people in those places are talking about. Join in the neighborhood conversation when you've got something to contribute — a question for your neighbors, a news report, an event listing, or just a heads-up about something people in your neighborhood should know about.

In April, EveryBlock.com agreed to donate $1 to DonorsChoose.org for each new neighbor that signed up for the site.  EveryBlock.com is proud to announce that they recently made a $10,000 donation which directly benefits three classrooms in Harlem, Washington Heights and the Upper East Side.  DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need.

Because of Everyblock.com success, three New York Classrooms Benefit Following Successful Neighborhood Recruitment Drive.  EveryBlock, the place for all your neighborhood news and talk, will proudly donate $10,000 to DonorsChoose.org, which supports their classroom fundraisers in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle.  The donation, which resulted from the recent EveryBlock neighbor recruitment drive, will help to fund classroom project requests made by local public school teachers to help students in need. 

In New York, EveryBlock awarded $1,808 to three classrooms, which allowed them to purchase their requested materials:
Harlem Link Charter School
- LCD projector, portable projector, biographical text books
