Mother’s Day Gift Bags – Items Needed

By Monday, May 5th we need to collect items for gift bags. In support of all the mothers at District Alliance for Safe Housing (DASH), CREW DC has for many years put together gift bags full of essentials and luxuries to ensure the moms have a gift on Mother’s Day. Consult the list in this google document and give what you can. You may also volunteer with other CREW DC Members on Tuesday, May 3rd to assemble bags from donated items at a location in DC to be announced.

If you’d rather make a monetary donation so we can purchase what’s needed for the bags – be sure to reach out to the contacts below.
