They come in all shapes and sizes, from all corners of the metro area, and all walks of life. They are lawyers, business owners, retirees, students, and everything in between. Above all, they are selfless and committed to being of service to their community. Luckily for us, Bread for the City is a part of that community!

At the 2016 Bread for the City Good Hope Awards, we honored 21 of our dedicated volunteers in fine style. The Awards, hosted at Hotel Monaco on Thursday, October 13, recognized these remarkable 18 individuals and three (3) organizations for their support to the organization over the past year.

Keynote speaker Will Jawando, highlighted the importance of dignity in working with the community and how Bread for the City embodies that in its approach to helping. He spoke of his own childhood experience of growing up and depending on the support of organizations like BFC. His message was powerful resonated with the audience.

Hawkin’s award was accepted posthumously by friend Mike Hopkins.

Recently, Bread for the City lost one of our own, Ms. Dorothy Hawkins. A special award was presented posthumously to the former board member for her outstanding dedication to Bread for the City in executing our mission to help people. This award will henceforth be named in Hawkins’ honor and presented annually to an outstanding board member.

Schronda Williams is a great Organizer and she truly cares about the people. I met her when she was feeding the homeless at the DC General Shelter. She provided me with resources and helped me obtain a job and housing in DC. I will never forget her. Thanks Bread for your awesome Organizers!
