Can You Do More for Play?

Posted by on May 17, 2018 in Featured Stories |

Do More 24 is here! The 24-hour online giving event powered by United Way of the National Capital Area, from noon Thursday to noon Friday. This morning, we announced that Playtime will bring the transformative power of play to two new overflow shelter sites: the Days Inn and the Holiday Inn Express, both on New York Avenue.

We’ve set an ambitious goal of $24,000 to get us up and running at these two locations. Your gift will ensure safe play for children living in these overflow shelter hotels — and provide consistency for the children and families being relocated from D.C. General Family Shelter upon its closure this fall.

We will continue serving children at our two transitional housing partner sites in D.C., as well as at the Quality Inn on New York Avenue, where we launched programming in January 2017. Help us bring play to more children experiencing homelessness.

You can make the difference for this vulnerable population by ensuring Playtime is available at the Days Inn and the Holiday Inn Express hotels. Make your gift today!
