#SocialDistancing and Caring: Fundraisers and Charitable Giving

Thanks to all of your sharing and talking via social media– especially Twitter and Instagram– I’ve been asked more than once how people can help others during this time of need, specifically on the Hill. This will be a frequently updated list. I know I missed things– shoot me an email at Maria@thehillishome.com and I’ll add it.

Capitol Hill Village

Capitol Hill Village is a member-powered organization that allows Capitol Hill residents to stay in their houses for as long as possible, fostering a sense of agency and community. They have a portal for members and the community at large with links to activities, grocery shopping, help around the house and more, which you can access here. If you are a member of the community who wants to help CHV’s mission, fill out this form and send an email to info@capitolhillvillage.org

Covid Care for the DMV Area

Spearheaded by neighbor Allison McGill, Covid Care helps individuals in high risk groups obtain food, get supplies and have errands run so they can stay at home and we can flatten the curve. What originally started as a small grassroots effort now boasts over 3000 volunteers. You can still volunteer by emailing alli@thetabledc.org or by visiting thetablechurchdc.org/coronavirus-assistance

Everyone Home DC

A local non-profit that ensures all our neighbors, regardless of their housing situation, feel at home on the Hill, Everyone Home DC helps the most vulnerable in our community. You can make a donation in this time of extreme need here.
