Local Briefing: Goodwill Headed to NoMa, National Night Out, & Streetcar Stop Reopens

The Uline Arena while under construction on in 2016

WBJ: Goodwill of Greater Washington to Uline
Today's biggest news comes to us from The Washington Business Journal, which reports that Goodwill of Greater Washington is moving its headquarters to NoMa. It won't happen until 2019, but at that time the organization will take up residence in the development at Uline Arena.

National Night Out Festivities
It's National Night Out, an opportunity to connect with neighbors and the MPD officers in your community. Here are some of the local events:

4-8 pm
Potomac Gardens (1225 G Street, SE)
Come out to meet MPD members from the First District as well as your community partners and enjoy food and refreshments and plenty to do for the whole family.

4-8 pm
Starburst Plaza (Benning & Bladensburg Roads, NE)
Celebrate National Night Out with the Fifth District at the Starburst Plaza. Enjoy free food, live music, and more.

Streetcar Stop at 3rd & H Street NE Reopens Today
The streetcar's eastbound stop at 3rd & H is back in business after being knocked out of commission by an errant Megabus in spring of 2017. You can read about the original crash on Greater Greater Washington.
