As we enter this busy Fall season, you can see that our nonprofits are hard at work planning annual Galas, Fun Runs, and festivals for all! With most of the tourists gone, this is a great time to make connections in your neighborhood and connect with our amazing nonprofits. Happy Friday!
With a little over a month to go before the release of the 2014-2015 Catalogue, it’s a busy (and exciting!) time here at the office! But sometimes…that excitement gets the best of us and, well, next thing we know we’re mesmerized by an adorable kitten video and forget to include that video’s organization in our #whatsupwednesday blog. This was the case for Stone Soup Films, which, last week, sent us a video hot off its screen debut (courtesy of Stone Soup Doc-in-a-Day volunteers) about the Washington Humane Society. Check out their video here and prepared to be mes”meow”ized.
Enjoy the nice weather while it’s still here?with some great events courtesy of our Catalogue nonprofits. This week we bring you a Write Night, Welcome Breakfast, ?Fishing Day, 5K walk, and a Power Party. Thanks so much everyone for a great week, hope to see you at the events!
Wrapping up another great week here at the Catalogue. With so much excitement in the air, what better way to spend the weekend than checking out some events, courtesy of our nonprofits!
At the end of this short week we bring you the latest events and excitement from Catalogue nonprofits. As we begin to settle into the fall season, get out into our community and meet organizations that are doing great work in our community!

Just because it’s a short workweek doesn’t mean Catalogue charities are doing any less across Greater Washington. From training coaches for youth sports programs, to encouraging reading among at-risk students, to providing legal aid to help people keep their homes…September is off to a remarkable start (see video here)!
