How WGB is Supporting the Community During COVID-19
Friends: This global pandemic continues to evolve and impact all of our lives in ways none of us could have imagined, but as always, Women Giving Back is here to provide critical essentials to those we serve.
- We continue to serve all of our referral partners across the DMV with clothing as requested, through our Bag-to-Go program.
- We have converted half of our warehouse space into a diapers, wipes, toiletries and snack packs distribution center. Many of our partners have boots on the ground, delivering clothing, food and essentials directly to the homes of their clients via porch-drop offs. We are serving as a hub to get those critical essentials out to those in need.
Our intent is to continue this critical essential distribution until it is no longer needed. We are working diligently with our community partners to understand specific needs. We encourage you to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date.
We have relied on our annual Cinco de Mayo celebration as our largest fundraiser for the past 10 years. We had to cancel that event this year, for obvious reasons. Although we have operating reserves thanks to sound financial decisions made by our board, we need your support now more than ever.
We cannot do our work without our amazing WGB family — donors, staff, volunteers, referral partners and supporters. Thank you for your continued support and ongoing dedication to helping our neighbors in need through this challenging time.
