Next week is Volunteer Appreciation Week and we want to celebrate with you. We are opening our doors to you and your children to come and volunteer together and help our community members have access to quality resources.
Bread for the City has completed construction on a new, 27,650 square foot comprehensive service center at 1700 Good Hope Road, SE, which began January 2019. Here’s a new video that captures all the special moments during the virtual grand opening.
Clients of Bread for the City highlight the impact we’ve had on them and in DC. Our organization treats community members with dignity and we help improve all areas of their lives.
Children’s Law Center and Bread for the City co-hosted this event during D.C. Pro Bono Week (October 2020) to discuss our respective legal services work East of the Anacostia River and to highlight the importance of pro bono in serving our D.C. neighbors.
What an accomplishment! Bread for the City was invited to join CoStar’s National Day of Service and Remembrance packing event on September 11th, and witnessed an incredible effort by 450 DC CoStar team members, who packed 100,000 meals to support local children and families across the district living with food insecurity.
217 individuals picked up produce. 25 volunteers served. 16 furbabies treated and snuggled. All in all, a successful market!
