National Good Neighbor Day 2017
Updated September 14, 2017
For the past few years, NHHA has celebrated National Good Neighbor Day by recognizing residents who exemplified what it means to be a Good Neighbor. We celebrated the kind and thoughtful people around us and expressed our gratitude for the sense of community we enjoy in our neighborhood. Last year, we expanded the program to acknowledge our nearby Dallas Fire & Rescue First Responders for the Good Neighbors that they are. Our efforts facilitated the donation of more than $8,000 worth of goods and gift cards from our residents and NHHA.
This year, the NHHA Board wants to focus on the youngest among us. We would like to be a Good Neighbor to Medical City Children's Hospital on Forest Lane. This health care facility offers world-class pediatric specialties including congenital heart surgery, hematology and oncology, craniofacial surgery, kidney transplant, neurosurgery, and orthopedics. In addition, Medical City Children's Hospital has urgent care and the highest level of neonatal care available in Dallas. After Hurricane Harvey recently ravaged south Texas, a few patients were transferred to Medical City from affected areas.
When our young neighbors have to spend their birthday or a beloved holiday, or worse, years of their life, in the hospital, it can be especially devastating. NHHA would love to facilitate bringing a smile to a young patient's face. Will you help us be a Good Neighbor? Here's how:
The Children's Hospital is always in need of new children's toys. They are typically most in need of infant/toddler toys that light up and/or make music. Stuffed animals are welcome as long as they are brand new. (Used stuffed animals or even stuffed animals that are old but never played with cannot be accepted). Arts and crafts kits are also always needed for activities they can bring to patients' bedsides.
If you'd like to donate a new children's toy, stuffed animal, or arts and crafts kit, please email to arrange the drop-off. We will collect the donations and deliver them on or around National Good Neighbor Day on September 28th. If you'd like to contribute financially, please make your check out to NHHA and mail to PO Box 800874, Dallas, TX 75380 or email Melinda to drop off a check or cash personally. (DO NOT MAIL CASH). NHHA will pool the donated funds to purchase new toys for the patients. The deadline for participation is Tuesday, September 26th.
The residents of our wonderful neighborhood consistently show themselves to be generous, friendly, and caring. Thanks for epitomizing what it means to be a good neighbor.
What a Fabulous 4th! We hope you enjoyed the 24th Annual NHHA Independence Day Parade and Celebration. Pictures and a full write-up were printed in the Summer Edition of The Breeze newsletter that hit mailboxes in August. Special thanks to our sponsors who helped make this event possible. Because of their generous support of Northwood Hills, we hope you'll consider these companies when a need arises:
Judy Switzer & Associates
Spring Valley United Methodist Church
Melinda Spence, Gilchrist & Company Real Estate
Ready Roofing & Renovation

National Good Neighbor Day 2016: First Responder Edition
Updated November 16, 2016
In 2016, NHHA acknowledged our Dallas Fire & Rescue first responders, who are close by and ready 24/7 to help with a fire or medical emergency situation at our homes. These firefighters and EMS personnel are our Good Neighbors every day, even when we don't need them. When we do, they are invaluable.
Did you know 2 fire stations serve Northwood Hills? While Station 56 at Fretz Park is responsible for maintaining hydrants and answering calls north of Spring Valley and Station 22 near Coit & Churchill Way handles hydrants and calls south of Spring Valley, they often back each other up on severe incidents.
Did you know firefighters work 24-hour shifts? They eat, sleep, and stay at their firehouses while they await their next call to duty. For part of the week, the station is their "home" and their work needs are different from other professions.
How Did We Show Our Appreciation? NHHA reached out to Station 56 and Station 22 to determine their needs. We wanted to make their work environment more comfortable, because this is their "home away from home." We accepted goods, money, and gift card donations from generous residents. The response was wonderful and our local fire stations were humbled. Check out this newsletter for the results.
NHHA is proud to recognize our first responders for being Good Neighbors and we appreciate your support in this endeavor!
Northwood Hills Supports Our Dallas Police Officers
Posted September 18, 2016
After the tragic events on July 7th in Downtown that resulted in the deaths of five officers and injuries to numerous others, many residents reached out to us for guidance on how to show support for our first responders. We provided resources for filling immediate needs at that time and began working on long-term initiatives for when the inevitable decline in public support would occur throughout the city.
With that in mind, we're pleased to share the results of the first project we worked on - a custom yard sign for Northwood Hills residents who want to publicly display their support for Dallas police officers year-round. The corrugated plastic sign (shown above) is 1-sided, 18" x 24" in size, and included a yard stake.
In conjunction with a sponsorship by All Saints Catholic School, Northwood Hills Homeowners Association was able to offer one yard sign to each member household FREE of charge.
We do not have plans at this time to place another sign order, but if that changes, we will reach out to members and let them know.
NHHA would like to thank our generous sponsor All Saints Catholic School
for underwriting a portion of the cost of the signs. All Saints Catholic School provides a faith-filled environment for students in PreK-3 through 8th grade, so that they can grow into the people God created them to be. Students are encouraged to participate fully in their own education and are given many opportunities to explore and develop their unique talents and gifts. All Saints Catholic School students benefit from a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence education, coupled with a warm and inviting atmosphere that molds students who are ready to lead, serve, and inspire others.
