Our 2019 Winter Warm-Up at the Northwest office was a great success! Samaritan Ministry hosts the warm-up annually to provide our participants with essential warm clothing in anticipation of the DC winter cold. This year, SMGW volunteers and staff rallied together early Monday morning (and even over the weekend) to move, sort, and fold all the clothing donated through Gifts for the Homeless, Inc. Many hands made light work!

Our Northwest party was December 8 at Christ Lutheran Church. What a celebration it was with participants, guests, volunteers and staff all joining in the festivities. St. Frances, Great Falls brought the hospitality of food and cheer as they set and served a buffet of treats for everyone. They also brought the gifts and managed Santa's shop where participants with children aged up to 12 are able to shop (for free) from among new donated toys, while participants received donated gift cards for children 13-17. Participants without children receive gifts cards.
