Open Arms Supporters Like Pizza!
Thanks so much to dozens of new and long-time supporters of Open Arms Housing who came out on a rainy Wednesday night in May to eat pizza and support Open Arms. And thanks again to Pete’s Apizza in Friendship Heights which gave us 25 percent of the cost of our supporters’ purchases. We raised nearly $500 that OAH staff will use to purchase household and personal items for new clients and provide transportation for clients to essential community services.
The Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington
We are pleased that The Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington will include us again this year in its guide to giving and volunteering. It is the region’s only locally-
focused guide and since 2003 has raised more than $40 million for its network of vetted charities. The guide highlights the best local charities in order to show what is possible when caring individuals – like you – connect with worthy causes. We are proud to be part of this network!
Save the Date – September 24!
We’ve set the date for our annual fundraiser – it’s going to be held on Monday evening, September 24, at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery, 702 – 8th Street, NW. Stay tuned for more details about our keynote speaker, award recipients, and other offerings.
