TAKE ONE HOUR TO DROP-OFF PRODUCTS THAT ARE CRITICAL TO COMMUNITY MEMBERS
DONATE FOOD ITEMS
Some food banks have already suspended services as a safety precaution. To support operational non-profits that provide meals to community members experiencing homelessness and poverty, consider donating non-perishable items to organizations like the Capital Area Food Bank and So Others Might Eat (SOME).
DONATE HYGIENE PRODUCTS
Along with food items, hygiene supplies are needed to continue supporting community members facing homelessness and poverty. The Greater DC Diaper Bank and the D.C. Mutual Aid Network are among organizations that are collecting supplies to distribute to vulnerable communities.
DONATE PET SUPPLIES
With many volunteers unable to assist and fewer people coming into shelters to adopt, local animal shelters are struggling and asking community members to foster or adopt an animal. If you're unable to, however, you can always donate pet products as more people step up to foster and are in need of supplies. Local foster agencies include: Humane Rescue Alliance and Lucky Dog Animal Rescue
