The Washington Building Congress (WBC) Community Services Committee and WBC Foundation are seeking support for two local organizations focused on providing winter coats, clothing and other items for people in need.
The Central Union Mission is “accepting all donations of winter coats and cloathing, in addition to food, sanitizing items and other gifts-in kind.”
Meanwhile, WBC also is encouraging support for N Street Village, specifically with “donations of new and gently-loved coats for clients and residents) between sizes M and 4XL. The organization asks for coats to arrive by Oct. 18.
“Last year, supporters helped provide nearly 150 women with a new coat at the Annual Coat Giveaway,” the WBC site notes. “This year, the goal is to collect 213 coats to ensure that every woman who arrives at their doors is met with dignity, welcome, and a warm winter coat.”
