Volunteers are the heart of Women Giving Back. With the help of thousands of volunteers and hundreds of corporate groups we are able to provide for the women and children we serve.

Giving Calendar
Help Replenish the Boutique!

We are in great need of fall/winter coats, clothing and shoes for women and children. Your donation makes a huge difference to the women and children we serve.

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.

Volunteer

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, diapers 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, 16 unaccompanied.

Would a bridesmaid dress be acceptable for donation? I feel like something like this could work for prom so I just wanted to check: www.davidsbridal.com/product/y-neck-long-mesh-dress-w11173

I assume dresses must be in good repair and dry-cleaned…?

Love this!❤️
