In May 2017, a group of friends with hearts to serve transformed the back alley of Calvary Women's Services, a women's transitional housing program in SE D.C., into a welcoming backyard Cookout. Recognizing the immense value of reminding women (no matter where they live) that holidays are for the community, fun, and love. Twice that summer, local friends of Betel continued to volunteer their time and gave their resources to provide a fun, loving, cookout to the dozens of homeless women living in transitional housing. The goal is to uplift the ladies by offering them the love and community we all get when we go to the family BBQ.
Our Memorial Day Cookout will take place on Monday, May 28 at 3 pm and we need your help to make this event a success as we once again, break bread cookout style with homeless women living in transitional housing in Washington DC!
Financial donations are used to purchase the food, raffle prizes and individual gift bags for the ladies that include items such as toiletries, hair care, and beauty products, and personal greeting cards with inspirational messages.
For more information, to volunteer or sponsor the event, please contact Betel at firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about our work at Calvary, view our story
