Friends of Edgewood Recreation Center




Friends of Edgewood Recreation Center (Friends of Edgewood) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that incorporated in the District of Columbia in 2009. 

We host community meetings, facilitate community building projects and neighborhood social events, maintain the Edgewood Community Garden, take the lead on quarterly neighborhood cleanups as well as community beautification projects.

     We proudly bring neighborhood ideas to life by 'doing good in Edgewood '                           throughout the year. All Edgewood residents are welcome to join and                       volunteers are encouraged to participate.
