Helping Women and Children in Crisis by Distributing Clothing at No Cost.
The foundation of everything we do is to ensure women and
children receive the basics in life.
The WGB Store is filled with donated clothing, accessories, shoes and more, for both women and children. Our clients are qualified by their case managers, and are most typically living in shelters or part of a transitional program in and around the Greater Washington DC area.
Our volunteers provide personal service and uplifting interaction in a unique boutique-like atmosphere. We are able to provide compassion, and companionship in otherwise tough situations.
Many clients leave their crises with only the clothing on their backs. We are here to help them restock those basic necessities free of charge. Through generous donations we make sure these women and children have what they need to to rebuild their lives and restore their dignity.
This increased self-esteem leads to an obvious resilience, poise and pep in their steps. They have their own checklist of to-dos and our job is to get them every step closer:
- Secure a stable roof over their head
- Gain and maintain employment
- Become more financially sound to make ends meet; and then some
- Apply their experiences and opportunities toward learning tools for their children
We watch them move up and away from the hurdles that once held them back.

On store days we need volunteers to help clients shop for clothing, restock the racks, provide childcare, check out our shoppers and overall, manage needs much like a retail department store.
Become a personal shopper, coordinate a donation drive; on or off-site (clothing, accessories, shoes, snack packs, toiletries and more!), facilitate corporate and community outreach and/or become a sort leader.
We welcome individuals, groups, families, schools/universities, businesses of any size, religious organizations, clubs and more. Children are welcome to volunteer if at least 12 and accompanied by an adult, 15 unaccompanied.

Now is the time to Do More! This year, Do More 24 is centered around helping children and families live their best lives by reducing disparities in health, education, employment, and economic opportunity. When you #DoMore4Equity and contribute to Women Giving Back, you are supporting our mission of helping women and childing in crisis on a first step to stability by providing quality clothing at no cost and our programmatic work that is dedicated to the upliftment of women and children and those who have been impacted by intergenerational cycles of poverty. We need your help to provide community members with the resources they need for success. Our work is more crucial now more than ever. It costs us more than $40,000 per month to keep our doors open to serve thousands of women and children who depend on our support.
Cinco De Mayo Fiesta
Wednesday, April 28, 2021 – Wednesday, May 5, 2021
Due to COVID-19, we have had to cancel our major Cinco de Mayo fundraiser for the 2nd year in a row. This year, we are holding an online auction in place of our usual fiesta. Our Cinco de Mayo event is one of our major fundraisers and has helped us sustain all the programs, clothing, and opportunities we offer our clients.
