Serve DC Honors World AIDS Day in the District with Food Drive
District Government agencies and offices to serve as drop-off locations for nonperishable food and personal items
Answer Mayor Gray’s call to support the HIV/AIDS community and honor World AIDS Day in the District by joining Serve DC – The Mayor’s Office on Volunteerism for the Many Hands, One Purpose DC Government Food Drive.
Kicking off on World AIDS Day on December 1, the Many Hands, One Purpose Food Drive offers District agencies and employees a meaningful opportunity to give back to neighbors in need by donating nutritious nonperishable food items to benefit Food & Friends, a District-based nonprofit that provides free, home-delivered meals, groceries and nutrition counseling to people living with HIV/AIDS in the DC area.
Five pounds of food = a meal for four people. Serve DC’s goal is to collect 3000 pounds – enough to serve 600 meals to 150 people.
The Many Hands, One Purpose Food Drive runs December 1 through December 22, and all DC Government agencies are encouraged to participate. Register today to find out how to make your agency or office a drop-off location or to become an “Agency Lead,” and serve as your agency’s primary point of contact.
Serve DC will handle all logistics, pick up, delivery, etc., and participating agencies will receive a full promotional packet with everything needed to successfully collect donations – it’s an easy way to make a huge impact on our community!
