Fannie Mae employees visited GMC on June 9 to give back to their community! They arrived at 10am and made a bunch of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and turkey and cheese sandwiches and then assembled lunch bags with a water bottle, chips, and a granola bar.
They passed out some lunch bags in our center before heading out with Gunther to do street outreach. We were having such a great time that nobody seemed to mind the heat and humidity. Those we encountered on the street certainly appreciated the water bottles included in the lunch bags.
Gunther talked about the history of homelessness in Georgetown and Foggy Bottom, as well as some of the challenges that we face during outreach. We spotted one or two Fannie Mae employees jotting down notes and passed out dozens of lunches to homeless individuals we met on the street, in the parks, and under the bridges.
Thank you so much to the Fannie Mae employees who chose to volunteer with us!
