Join the ULI Young Leaders as we hold a winter service event at A Wider Circle in Silver Spring on Saturday, February 25th from 10am to 1pm. A Wider Circle is a not-for-profit organization with a vision to end poverty. Over 160,000 people have benefited from A Wider Circle’s free services, which include furnishing living spaces for families transitioning out of shelters, educational programming focused on workforce development and wellness, wraparound support services and more. A Wider Circle receives more than 500 calls per day from individuals and families in need, people who want to volunteer and donate, and agencies seeking assistance in serving their clients.
Volunteers will help with a variety of activities such as organizing A Wider Circle’s warehouse, sorting donations of furniture and household goods, and loading furniture onto trucks to take to clients’ homes. Volunteers may also bring items to donate including healthy non-perishable food, unopened toiletries, non-toxic cleaning supplies, and new/gently used clothing and household items. Please see A Wider Circle’s website to learn more about donations.
The warehouse can get chilly, so please plan to bring a jacket or sweatshirt you are comfortable volunteering in.
Please RSVP to Emily.Weberman@uli.org by Tuesday, February 21st so that we may provide a list of volunteers to A Wider Circle.
Parking: There is free parking near the warehouse.
Pick-Up from Metro: We will be picking up and dropping off those who may need a ride from Metro at the Forest Glen Metro Station (about a mile away from the warehouse). Please let Emily Weberman know if you will need a ride, and someone from the Community Service Committee will be in touch.
