It's a Wrap -- the GFTH Annual Clothing Drive Successful Again in With Generous Help from You!
More details to come, but we wanted to share that with 405 volunteers we collected and distributed 4761 bags of used clothing, shoes and accessories, toys, bedding and household goods over the weekend of December 6, 2013 to more than 64 shelters and other providers servicing people experiencing homeless in the Washington, DC metro area! We are proud that our donation collection from 2012 was exceeded by more than a whopping 700 bags. Thank you to all who spent time, effort and resources to collect donations for our drive and volunteered during the weekend by sorting, bagging, delivering, and performing other tasks. We could not do it without all of you! An extra special thank you is extended to Kane Office Movers
for once again supplying its large moving trucks and professional movers to help deliver to many shelters over the weekend. Pics are up on our FaceBook
page and make sure to "like" us while visiting us over there!
