We have volunteers ready to support college students in need in various capacities such as, advice & tips pertaining to general knowledge about college, providing students with small bursts of financial support, and even just a listening ear. We want to ensure students have the resources needed to be successful and complete their education.

Luggage Drive for Foster Children

Foster children's transitions when they move from one home to another can be rough because most of the time they have to carry their items in trash bags. In order to decrease the amount of foster children in the area who have to use trash bags as luggage, we will be collecting new or gently used luggage bags, suitcases, large purses so foster children have sturdy and reliable packing bags to carry their items. In the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia there are thousands of foster children. Although, in the foster care system we aim to uplift, support, and embrace love to them through this drive. The purpose is to provide an emphasis on their importance as human beings.

Plates for the Homeless and Displaced During Thanksgiving & Christmas

We aim to provide a home cooked meal to homeless and displaced citizens during the holidays. More specifically, we aim to serve districts such as Freedom Square in Washington, DC and shelters in Maryland. In the United States, homelessness disproportionately affects African Americans. Specifically in Washington, DC it was reported to be 6,380 homeless citizens in 2020, 86.4% were Black or African American, according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our goal is to provide a warm meal and spread a little joy during the holidays.
