ELD Long Branch

Our Long Branch Empowerment and Leadership Team is currently collaborating with AIM Montgomery. On November 16th, CHEER and AIM Montgomery led an evening advocacy walk with community members. Delegate Lorig Charkoudian and David Botello from Councilmember Evan Glass' office were also in attendance. The purpose of this walk was to focus on the parking and safety issues surrounding the lack of parking in Long Branch. We wanted to make our elected officials aware of the current state of these issues at nightime.

Winter Coat Drive 2023

CHEER helped host a winter coat donation and distribution. Our initial goal was to be able to distribute 500 coats to Long Branch residents at the Long Branch Community Center. However, with the help of our amazing community, we were able to distribute over 1,000 coats!  Thank you to our amazing partners for making this happen! We could not have made this event possilbe without the help of Silver Spring Cares, the Montgomery County Recreation Department, the Silver Spring Regional Services Center, Annie Tulkin, County Executive Marc Elrich, and the Montgomery County Police Department.
