Every year at conference we support organizations that are making an impact locally and globally. We lead and love as we rise together and join in on making a difference.
The Rising Conference 2017 is supporting refugees locally and globally. In the Washington, DC area we have the opportunity to support refugee families who are resettling here. These are families who have been forced to leave their homes due to unimaginable circumstances of war and persecution. We are partnering with organizations that welcome and assist families in our metro DC area as they arrive to a new environment and culture.
How can you help?
Bring new items, from the list below, with you to the Rising Conference on May 26 – May 27. We will have representatives from local organizations available to tell you all about their work and how to get more involved.
Here is our wish list!
- House hold cleaning items (cleaning wipes, trash bags, paper towels, sponges and all purpose cleaner)
- Linens (pillows, wash cloths, hand towels, bath towels and sheets)
- Toiletry items (toilet paper, kleenex tissues, tooth brush & paste, shampoo & conditioner, soaps & body wash)
- Gift cards (Metro Smart trip cards, Target, Wal-mart and Grocery stores)
