Giving Tuesday 2017 – WE DID IT!
You’ve left us speechless. When we reached out to you in solidarity with our community in need, you stepped up more than ever before! On #GivingTuesday, we raised $40,597 — every dollar of which will go straight to making sure that DC families have food on the table, a roof over their heads, and a warm and happy holiday season.
PLUS, we more than met our $20,000 matching challenge, AND then even met a bonus $10,000 match! This means an extra check is in the mail from a generous donor.
What will we do with this extra $30,000? We’re so glad you asked!
- 73 hours of legal assistance will help stop evictions, protect families from domestic violence, and secure disability benefits.
- 74 people seeking jobs and affordable housing will work with our social services team to overcome barriers
- 86 patients will receive comprehensive health care, including pediatric, dental, and behavioral health.
- 140 people will cook 4,375 healthy meals with groceries from our food pantries.
We couldn’t do this without you. Thank you again and again for your kind-hearted generosity.
