Please join the WBC Community Services Committee and WBC Foundation in supporting two outstanding local organizations focused on providing winter coats, clothing and other items for people in need.
Thank you for your consideration and please see below for further details on how you can help those less fortunate as we enter the winter season. All donations can be made directly to these worthy nonprofit groups.
Central Union Mission
3194 Bladensburg Rd. NE, Suite B
Washington, DC 20018
Accepting all donations of winter coats and clothing, in addition to food, sanitizing items and other gifts-in-kind.
You can help protect our vulnerable neighbors by organizing a winter coat drive – coats, hats, gloves, and scarves in all sizes are needed. Whether it’s cold weather gear, everyday apparel, or professional attire, your clothing donations are greatly appreciated. The Comprehensive Family Resource Center staff can provide assistance should you need help unloading any items. The organization will also provide you with a written donation acknowledgment for tax purposes.
