The following email was distributed on the Georgia Avenue Listserv yesterday, and with school nearly upon us, it struck me as being critical that the word get out. If you are in a situation where you can help that would be great.
The Central Union Mission is currently planning for our back-to-school program, Operation Backpack, in which we provide backpacks and school supplies to children from low-income families in the DC Metro area. This program will only be successful with your help. By becoming a sponsor you will ensure that a child starts the school year off with the supplies they will need to lead them to success. Hurry, there’s only 10 days left and we still have over 100 children without a sponsor! If you, your business/organization or church would like more information about how to get involved, please contact Ben Doggett at email@example.com, or 202-745-7118. Thank you for you help!
