Get Some, Give Some: Huge Thanks!

Leave a comment

We asked for donations, and our readers came through! Thanks to the generosity of several people, we donated four trash bags and one plastic bin of clothing, coats, shoes, and blankets to The Great Clothes and Coats Give Away.

We can’t say it enough. THANK YOU, THANK YOU! When I dropped off our donations, the volunteers were stoked to see all the things we contributed! The items you donated will be given to individuals and families in the Washington, DC area absolutely free of charge. Because of your generosity, someone will be warmer this winter.

With all that’s going on in the world–wars, natural disasters, etc.–I’ve been thinking a lot about giving and service. DC’ers let out a sigh of relief when Hurricane Sandy didn’t destroy our area as it did others. We were blessed to not have widespread power outages, gas shortages, mass transit chaos, or rising death tolls. However, the reality is natural disasters, wars, etc. are always hard on those who have the least. Life is often hard on those who have the least. We’re happy we could contribute tangible things. As M. Ricks says, “It is truly a blessing to be a blessing.”

If you’re in the DMV, there’s still time to donate before the event on Saturday, November 10th. Drop us a line in the comment section so we can coordinate!

Until next time,
