Banding Together 2018

Date Announcement!!

Banding Together 2018 will be held on Thursday, June 14, 2018 @ The Black Cat!

Stay tuned for more details!!


Our 2017 Used Clothing Drive is over for the season. Together, you helped us collect, sort and bag more than 3,600 bags of good, used clothing, blankets, sheets, towels and toiletries. With the help of volunteers and our moving partner, Paxton Companies, we delivered to 47 shelters and homeless service providers in the greater Washington, DC area. More than 250 volunteers joined us at space donated by Lincoln Property Company. We couldn’t have done this without you!

We are still getting lots of interest from individuals and organizations who still wish to donate clothing and other items. Unfortunately, we are not a “bricks-and-mortar” organization so we can’t accept any donations directly until next year’s drive. But, many of our recipient organizations continue to have needs and operate year-round. While we ask you to consider all of them if you can, here are a few reliable and easy places to make in-kind donations of clothing and other items throughout the year:

Martha's Outfitters (Men’s, Women’s and Children’s)

Call for current drop-off hours. Not all of the organizations accept all kinds of donations, so it is best to confirm our information before you go.

See you at Banding Together in June and at next year’s Drive (December 8th and 9th – Save the Date!)

Again, thank you for all you have done and continue to do to “make the winter a little warmer” for our neighbors in need. Happy Holidays!
