Want to use your talents and gifts to help out Mary House around the Holidays? Here are some ways you can do just that!
Holiday Turkey and Fruit Campaign – Every year, Mary House gives away turkeys to families who wouldn’t be able to have a holiday meal otherwise. This year, we’re looking to expand our turkey giveaway, and add chicken roasters and fresh fruit baskets. Want to help us reach families in need? Call Sharon Murphy at 202-635-9025.
Adopt a Family for the Holidays – Do you have children who would like to help out kids their own ages? If so, give them that chance by adopting a Mary House family for the holidays. We tell you a little bit about them, like their ages, genders, and preferences, then you go and get gifts. Mary House staff will deliver the presents and your regards.
After School Program Volunteer – Love children? So do we! At Mary House’s After School Program, staff and volunteers help immigrant and refugee kids by reading books, providing snacks, planning activities, and assisting with homework. If you want to be part of a child’s life, call Sharon at 202-635-9025.
Paper Product Donations – At the Mary House Program Office, we go through a lot of paper products: paper towels, toilet paper, paper plates and bowls, tissues. Kids use a lot! If you want to help us out with this basic need, give Sharon a call at 202-635-9025.
New and Lightly Used Children’s Book Drive – Have any childhood books laying around? Know of any library book giveaways? We’re always looking to replenish the Mary House library. Bring lightly used or new books to the Mary House Program Office. But first, give Sharon a call at 202-635-9025.
