Unity of Washington, DC
Adopt-A-Family Program

Your generous support of our Adopt-a-Family program has been a rewarding and heartwarming way to help some of the areas neediest families. Although COVID-19 may be subsiding, its effects are far from over. As was done in past years, with your support, we can restore hope to these families to make holiday wishes come true.
Our 2021 Adopt-A-Family program will be run similar to last year. Instead of wrapped toys and gifts, we are requesting monetary donations to ensure that the families will have the flexibility to celebrate Christmas in a meaningful way. To that end, our goal is to collect $10,000 to support the families we have adopted. The money will be used to purchase gift cards that will cover not only toys and other gifts, but also for the purchase of grocery store items. We will distribute the gift cards to each family based on their size.

DONATIONS must be received on or before Monday, December 6 in order to purchase the gift cards and distribute to the families in time for their holiday shopping.
A monetary gift of any size is truly appreciated, please consider donating in $50 increments!

19 Years of Holiday Cheer for Seniors!

Once again this year, Unity of Washington, DC, is excited to support those Seniors in our community during the holiday season. In the past congregants came together on Christmas Eve to prepare meals for local seniors; however due to the health risks that continue to linger from COVID-19 and any variants, like last year; we are requesting donations of money for the purchase of grocery store gift cards. The gift cards will be mailed along with a holiday card from Unity of Washington, DC to arrive prior to Christmas.

Holiday Cheer serves approximately 250 low-income seniors who come to us through Everyone Home DC (formerly—Capitol Hill Group Ministries) and AARP’s Legal Consul for the Elderly.

If you choose to support our Holiday Cheer for Seniors this year, here are several ways you can participate:
