The 2018 Holiday Helpings campaign may have concluded, but we are still blown away by our community’s incredible fundraising energy and generosity that made this year our most successful Holiday Helpings campaign yet!
Our chairman, Paul Taskier on why Holiday Helpings is a special time of year: “While it is holy work to provide food to those who do not have it, it is all that much more special and meaningful to allow others to experience the holiday as we all do, to allow them to forget the daily burdens and celebrate their family togetherness.”
It’s the busiest time of the year for us and we need your help to feed 9,000 DC families over the holidays.
On November 16th, we had several special visitors stop by! Four players from D.C. United visited our NW Center food pantry to support our Holiday Helpings program. Steve Birnbaum, Kofi Opare, Nick DeLeon, and Chris Durkin packed and distributed dozens of holiday meal kits, all of which include a turkey with all the trimmings, to our clients. The guys worked hard to keep up with the infamously long line in our food pantry during this time of year, but also enjoyed one on one time with clients and staff.
