This past weekend, AOL and Patch employees took an opportunity to pitch in, packing two tractor trailers worth of food, water and supplies in Dulles, VA, and Baltimore.

Updates to site layout designed to make it easier to navigate the site.
Hyattsville Patch looks different today. We did a Patch-wide quick visual nip-and-tuck to the homepage to make it even more user-friendly. And we've moved a couple pieces of furniture. For those keeping score: While the site might look a little different today, we still offer the same robust coverage of everything happening in your community. That was, is, and will always be our mission. We hope you'll let us know what you think of our tweaks - drop me a line or offer a comment below! As with any update, there may be some hiccups. If you are having trouble with a particular feature, feel free to email me with a description of your problem at Michael.Theis@Patch.com. Thank you for your patronage.
