As organizations across the DC Metro region prepare for the harsh winter season, our charities are getting ahead of the game with successful hunger-awareness campaigns, winter coat drives, and MORE (details after the video)!
“What’s Up” this week?
- Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services distributed coats to clients in advance of the upcoming winter chill. As you can see in the video, today an adorable little one (and his mom) stopped by.
- Girls on the Run DC learned that “It Takes Courage” – The girls learned the importance of standing up for themselves and using appropriate assertive behavior as well as practice these skills. They were also understanding the importance of using one’s own voice and constructively expressing their feelings, wants, and needs.
- Our Daily Bread and Food for Others celebrated food, art and fun! Both organizations gathered more than 1,000 community members in Fairfax City on Sunday at Complete the Circle FoodRaiser 2014. They created a cool Art For The Sky photo, enjoyed live music, food and kids’ activities and raised $15,300 worth of food, grocery gift cards and cash donations to help neighbors in need throughout the Fairfax County area.
- …and also, Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area helped others fight off Parkinson’s Disease through exercise!
