Bread for the City
The mission of Bread for the City is to help Washington, DC residents living with low income to develop their power to determine the future of their own communities. We provide food, clothing, medical care, and legal and social services to reduce the burden of poverty. We seek justice through community organizing and public advocacy. We work to uproot racism, a major cause of poverty. We are committed to treating our clients with the dignity and respect that all people deserve. For more information, click here.
ASAS DC provides daily after-school programs to low-income students in Washington DC. From 3-6 pm, we offer academic support, enrichment, and health and fitness activities to those who can't access them. Our mission is to provide free, comprehensive programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and in life. Our vision for our All-Stars is that they are safe and healthy, graduate high school and go on to college, find careers they love, and give back to their communities.
When our lives were collectively turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic, it became close to impossible to find feelings of joy. Imagine being in middle school, with all the change and uncertainty that chapter of life brings. Imagine that, in a matter of days, you became separated from your friends, your hobbies, and the spaces where you were learning about yourself and the person you want to become. That's where our students found themselves in March of 2020. And although they may have felt alone, After-School All-Stars DC was there, every day and every step of the way. In the first year of the pandemic, our organization distributed $40,000 of grocery store gift cards so that our families would not have to worry about their next meal. Our program teams delivered laptops, WiFi hotspots, art supplies, yoga mats, and even DJ setups directly to students' doors so that everyone could get the most out of virtual learning. From last year to now, we have been supporting our students in the transition back to in-person school and the many challenges that come with it.
We are working with students to re-develop their sense of self and imagine happy, healthy futures in a world that feels very different than it did just a couple of years ago. As our students seek stability after two years of disruption, After-School All-Stars DC is here to help them re-discover their joy, big and small, in and out of the classroom.
Moments of joy can be life-changing. This giving season, choose joy with After-School All-Stars DC. For more information, click here.
