Support DowntownDC This Holiday Season!

by DowntownDC Foundation

This holiday season, help the DowntownDC Foundation continue to serve our community! 

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.

  • We have served 37,500 lunches to individuals experiencing homelessness since the pandemic began
  • We have installed portable handwashing stations, toilets and distributed PPE to help reduce the spread of COVID-19
  • Franklin Park began undergoing a vast reconstruction project, and will support the community next year as downtown's largest green space
  • We have received support from Macy's, Gilbane, Boston Properties and more donors who have stepped forward to help those in need

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.
