We have three announcements to share with you this week:
Summer Homeless Census in Georgetown
Every winter, there is a nationwide count of homeless persons called the Point in Time survey. The Georgetown BID and GMC are working together to conduct a summer version of the Point in Time survey in Georgetown, and we need your help!
We are looking for volunteers to help us with the count that is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 24 at 9pm. Volunteers will receive a brief training before breaking up into teams to cover certain areas of Georgetown and Foggy Bottom. The night usually takes 1.5 to 2.5 hours.
Volunteers should be 16 years or older and able to walk at least a mile. If they have one, volunteers should also bring a flashlight. If you are interested, please email Stephanie Chan at firstname.lastname@example.org
Clothing Closet Changes
A few days ago, we announced on our blog some upcoming changes to our clothing closet. Just as a reminder, we are moving our clothing closet to a smaller space and can no longer accept general clothing donations. Instead, we have updated our wish list on our website and are encouraging people to take a look at our Amazon.com Wishlist.
We have a fabulous volunteer, Kirsten, who is a psychologist and hoping to start an art therapy group in our center. Please help us get this off the ground by donating crayons and newsprint pads! You can find more details on our Amazon Wishlist.
