Correction and an Update
An incorrect telephone number for the Community Service Guild's tutoring program for elementary school children ran in last week's column. The correct number for volunteer tutors to call is: 202-628-8867.
The A. Eugene Hoeper Foundation, 8716-202 Hayshed Lane, Columbia, Md. 21045-3096 thanks the community for the overwhelming response to a request for new and used greeting cards that ran Jan. 1. More than 100 packages of cards arrived and the foundation needs to process the donated cards, which are recycled into greeting cards and sent to isolated deaf people living in nursing homes all over the country. People who want to donate cards in the future should write to the foundation first to assess current needs.
