Since 1986, GFTH has raised more than $1.85 million for purchases. Last year alone, GFTH donated over $185,000 worth of essential new clothing items and blankets to area shelters.
Throughout the year, GFTH raises money to purchase new clothing and other items for donation to certain D.C. and other area shelters. Such items include thermal underwear, thermal socks, sweatshirts, sweatpants, hats, gloves, underwear, socks, and blankets. Because the organization has no overhead — no paid staff, no administrative costs — every single penny we receive goes directly toward purchasing items needed by the homeless.
