A Wider Circle is a non-profit that helps people in poverty by provision of basic need items to individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, or otherwise living without the essentials for life. They also have a Workforce Development Program that provides training and mentorship as well as business attire for interviews and work once hired. They have built neighborhood partnerships in DC to reach more communities.
We will be volunteering to help keep the showroom (where clients come to "shop" for free furniture, household goods, baby clothes, and books and toys for kids) stocked from donated items in the storeroom below the showroom. There are jobs big and small for all ages and they also provide SSL hours to middle school and high school volunteers.
Water and snacks will be provided and we have the option to go out for a late lunch together afterwards.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know who is coming and ages of children. Please request ASL interpretation by Jan 10th. If you have MOBB United shirts or gear, please wear them. If you don't have any, check them out at www.mobbunited.org/store.
