Thank you for supporting Holiday Helpings this year and helping us provide gift cards to families and individuals who are struggling during the pandemic. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.
Alston & Bird LLP is a proud supporter of Bread for the City. Each year, their team comes together to create a fundraising drive for Holiday Helpings in addition to their community volunteer efforts, and thanks to their incredible dedication to the program and BFC’s clients, they helped make a vital resource possible for over 735 DC residents and their families this holiday season. Learn how they get in the spirit each year for Holiday Helpings, and what the program also means for them.
Board members and clients of Bread for the City highlight the difference we have made in their lives. We provide food, clothing, medical care, legal and social services to reduce the burden of poverty. We are committed to treating our clients with the dignity and respect that all people deserve.
The Vaughan family has been participating in the Holiday Helpings program for many years. It gives both boys an opportunity to connect with friends and family with whom they have missed during this pandemic to talk to them about a really good cause.
Our Corporate Partners at Perkins Coie have a longstanding date with Holiday Helpings, joining us each year in support of the program by hosting a fundraising drive, rallying their communities, and volunteering to help us provide services. Take a look into their time spent with Holiday Helpings over the years!
If you missed the Holiday Helpings Virtual Halftime Show and Step Rally, you can watch it here. It featured special guests, a performance from Sweet Honey and the Rock, and surprises from celebrities. It was hosted by Kevin Blackistone from The Washington Post and ESPN’s Around the Horn, and Britt Waters, host of the Washington Wizards and Mystics.
This is the time of year that Bread for City helps make the holidays a little more special for thousands of DC families. Giving for Holiday Helpings is a holiday tradition at my house, and I hope it is at yours, too! For me, it’s as though my holidays don’t begin until I do some volunteering and make a donation for Holiday Helpings.
