Bread for the City strongly condemns the recent ICE arrests in NE D.C. and the Trump Administration’s policy decision to separate children from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Did you know Bread for the City has a new mission statement? We’ve updated our purpose with new goals and values, while still preserving the same quality services and dignity-based model we’ve always had.
After the decision of the Trump Administration to end Temporary Protected Status for 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants residing legally in the United States, many local organizations have spoken out against this act. One of them is Ayuda, an organization that provides legal services, social workers, and language access support to immigrants from 104 countries who reside in DC, Maryland, and Virginia area.
Chris McCullough of the Washington Wizards visited Bread for the City’s SE Center last week, where he volunteered at its Food Pantry. After handing out food bags, he had quality time with clients and staff, taking pictures and chatting, proving that he really is such a good sport! We interviewed Chris to hear his thoughts on giving back, volunteering, and what he enjoys most about the holiday season.
