BFC Board President, Jon Fee, writes about Holiday Helpings for this year

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.

A Conversation about Holiday Helpings with Lauren Taylor

Our community members are in deep need due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many low-income families are struggling with employment, food security, and mental health. The holiday season is here, but celebrating with family and friends may not be a priority to everyone. Holiday Helpings this year is about turning tradition into progress, we’re providing the necessary tools for people to make their own decisions. This year Lauren Taylor, Representative Payee Benefits Coordinator, created a classy page to help raise funds for Holiday Helpings. We got the chance to speak with Lauren about her participation this year.
