This year has been challenging for communities across the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and DowntownDC has been no different.
Individuals experiencing homelessness during the pandemic have had fewer options to obtain basic needs including food, shelter and restroom access. Many of the retail, restaurants, hotels, performance venues and cultural attractions on which DowntownDC thrives have closed due to safety concerns and/or economic challenges. And without individuals working from their offices, there are fewer individuals in DowntownDC to support commerce and our community.
But the DowntownDC Foundation, together with our partners, has been able to make a difference.
Thanks to your support, we raised $33,959 on Dec. 1 for GivingTuesday! Help us keep that momentum going and reach our goal of raising a total of $50,000 by Dec. 31. Support the DowntownDC Foundation this holiday season and help support our community during this unprecedented time.
