Give a Hand

We encourage you to join us in giving a hand by donating. Proceeds from Give Big Washington will be used when and where the need arises. If there is an increase in the demand for food, medical care, or help with utility bills, we will use it accordingly.  Our 300+ volunteers work hand in hand with local merchants to provide goods and services to our clients. 


We put our faith into action by doing whatever we can, whenever we can, with whatever we have.
