Five school board members said MCPS Deputy Superintendent Monifa McKnight is the “obvious choice” to fill the vacant position, at least temporarily. “I certainly think she has the inside edge. In this most challenging time, having someone intimately involved with every aspect of MCPS is critical," board member Pat O’Neill said.

McKnight, hired in 2019, is ‘intimately involved,’ prepared to lead, board members say

“It was very rewarding to see somebody that was hurt as bad as John was be able to walk into the station not even a year later. You really don’t get to meet a lot of the people you help out.”

When John Ross mentioned a car crash he was in, Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad Vice President John Bentivoglio knew the date and time it happened.

"There are some people who are saying, ‘I’d like to see other people get it before I get it.’ There is hesitancy but it’s not necessarily — not all hesitancy is outright refusal,” said Dr. Earl Stoddard, executive director of the county’s Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security.

UPDATE: Collection to Support Local Restaurants and Supply Meals to Suburban Hospital Hi Bethesda neighbors and friends, We deeply appreciate your kindness and generosity during these challenging times. We are close (just $1100 away) to raising $50,000! And every dime collected has been given directly to local restaurants to supply meals for our local hospital workers. Please consider donating or donating again. Unfortunately, we are also close to having to stop operations. After 2 1/2 months of supplying meals almost daily, we will only be able to supply a few meals next week--and then we'll be out of funds. And--we'd love to go over the $50k mark--to be able to say that together we raised and donated $50,000 (!!!) to the local businesses and hospital from our community during these challenging times would be absolutely AMAZING! Please, please donate at www.feedsuburbanheroes.com (link below)--and if you'd prefer to pay via venmo, zelle, or by check, please let me know at [email protected] and I'll give you the info.

UPDATE: Collection for Meals for Suburban Hospital Workers and to Support Local Restaurants Good morning, Bethesda Magazine readers, What troubling, heartbreaking times we are living in--for so many reasons. Amidst everything happening, we are still supporting our local restaurants with large orders of meals for the healthcare workers at Suburban Hospital. More than ever, they all need our support. Everyday we are told by the restaurants how grateful they are for the business and by our hospital contacts how appreciative they are for the meals. Together, we have been delivering meals from local restaurants to the hospital (sometimes for 2 or even 3 shifts a day for 30-350 people at a time) for about 2 and a half months now. During that time, we have supported almost 70 local restaurants and bakeries (some multiple times) and have supplied almost 4800 meals. Recently, we ordered meals from: O'Donnells, Brickside, M & N Pizza, Bibibop, The Big Greek Cafe, Cheesy PIzzi, Golden House, Hardy's BBQ, Peter's Carryout, Guru Groceries, World of Beer, Barrel and Crow, Los Cubanos, Momo, Vignola Cafe, Java Nation, and Empanadas de Mendoza. It has truly been an amazing grass-roots, community based effort. To continue, however, we need more contributions now. Without more funds raised, we will have to stop providing meals beyond this week. Please, please considering donating or donating again to keep this effort going. You can donate at our website via paypal, apple pay, or credit card at: https://feedsuburbanheroes.com/ If you would prefer to donate via venmo, zelle, or check, please let me know. Please stay safe out there--and please continue to support our local businesses and hospital workers through this effort. Thank you, thank you, thank you in advance for your kindness, generosity, and support.
Check it out--we were featured on Fox 5 on Saturday night for our work feeding Suburban Hospital workers with meals from local restaurants! Thanks for all of your support! We continue to provide meals for 1-2 shifts a day at the hospital for 30-50 people at a time and have supported 60+ local restaurants. Join our efforts! We need you! Consider donating, or donating again, at www.feedsuburbanheroes.com or if you want to contribute via venmo, zelle, or check, let me know and I'll tell you how. https://www.fox5dc.com/video/687672
UPDATE: Collection for Meals for Suburban Hospital Workers & to Support Local Restaurants Good morning: we sent our very first pizzas to Suburban Hospital on March 21 -- so today marks two months since we started our effort to support the healthcare workers at Suburban Hospital and to support our local restaurants! In that time, together we have collected just shy of $45,000 from 680 donations, have delivered over 4000 meals and baked goods, and have supported over 60 local restaurants! This week's amazing highlights: We received 6 cases of donated girl scout cookies from Girl Scout Cadette Troop 1363 (Silver Creek and Stone Ridge 7th Grade Girls) that we brought over to the hospital! The members of the North Bethesda Fit Body Boot Camp created a collection and donated $600 to our efforts. And, in total this week we raised just over $6000-- including contributions through the new website we launched. We keep hearing how grateful the hospital staff are for the meals and the restaurants are for the business. So, we'd like to keep this going as long as we can. To do that, we need your help! Please donate, or donate again at
Good afternoon. I'd like to highlight an ongoing community effort that is designed to support both our local restaurants and the healthcare workers at Suburban Hospital during the Covid-19 pandemic. A group of us in the East Bethesda neighborhood have now collected almost $45,000 from Bethesda-area neighbors (through 600+ donations) and have provided more than 3500 meals to the workers at Suburban Hospital. In doing so, we've supported over 60 local restaurants and bakeries. Last week we bought and delivered meals from: Dog Haus, Medium Rare, Lilit Cafe, Hanaro Sushi, Bethesda Bagels, Talias Cuzina, Woodmont Deli, and Vignola Cafe. Plus, last week was Hospital Week at Suburban and to help them celebrate their Healthcare Heroes, we sent in 350 sweet and savory breakfast items from Patisserie Manuel. We have set up a website to donate to this cause: www.feedsuburbanheroes.com. 100% of what we collect goes directly to our local restaurants to feed our local hospital workers. It's a real win-win! So--please consider donating. And feel free to recommend restaurants we can support. Thank you!
