BFC Board President, Jon Fee, writes about Holiday Helpings for this year

This is the time of year that Bread for City helps make the holidays a little more special for thousands of DC families.  Giving for Holiday Helpings is a holiday tradition at my house, and I hope it is at yours, too!  For me, it’s as though my holidays don’t begin until I do some volunteering and make a donation for Holiday Helpings.
