Our Walker Mill apartments in District Heights, MD, are surrounded by an incredible community of love and support. If you would like to give back to the community, consider championing some of these wonderful nonprofits near District Heights:

Alley Cat Rescue 

When Alley Cat Rescue opened in 1997, it became America’s first “National Cat Protection Agency.” Founder Louise Holton set up low-cost spay/neuter clinics, international programs benefiting African wildcats, and more. If you want to help, you can make an online donation through their website. They use the money towards microchipping and rabies vaccinations, among other needs. You can also shop from the rescue’s Amazon wishlist, which includes food, carriers, and bottles for small animals. Amazon will conveniently ship your order straight to Alley Cat.

National Parks Conservation Association

Headquartered in nearby DC, the NPCA works to protect America’s national parks. For the last century, the NPCA has inspired people to respect the great outdoors, so as to ensure that future generations are also able to enjoy our wildlife. To support the NPCA, shop for your favorite brands on AmazonSmile. Just like to the process with Alley Cat, Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase price to the NPCA. 

DC Central Kitchen

DC Central Kitchen uses food to nourish bodies and unite communities. Robert Egger established the nonprofit in 1989 when he decided to take wasted food and turn it into balanced meals for the hungry. DC Kitchen has won the White House Champion of Change Award. In addition, it also gained recognition from PBS and The Washington Post. Your donations help ensure that everyone in our community has access to healthy food.
