ADOPT A FAMILY
The Methuen Arlington Neighborhood, Inc. organizes an "Adopt a Family" program for families that are struggling during the holidays. The information for each child is provided to a sponsor, who in turn purchases the three items the child would like for Christmas. The items most asked for from the children are school supplies, strategic games, and warm clothing. There is an average of 200 children that are recipients of this terrific program.
ANNUAL NATIONAL NIGHT OUT
Residents of the neighborhood participate in "National Night Out" event every year. Over 100 residents come together to "SAY NO TO CRIME" and meet their neighbors, elected officials and Methuen Police and Fire Departments.
