Come represent BWS-SWE and help prepare meals and serve them to hungry guests at SOME’s Dining Rooms for the Homeless located. Eight (8) of us will help SOME to provide a nourishing, hot lunch on this Sunday afternoon, while getting to know each other.
SOME (So Others Might Eat) is an interfaith, community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation’s capital. We meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing, and health care. We help break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling, to the poor, the elderly and individuals with mental illness. Each day, SOME is restoring hope and dignity one person at a time. We invite you to join us.
Directions / Parking:
Limited parking is available in SOME’s lot that is adjacent to the Dining Room, as well as on the street. We have 13 parking spots labeled ‘Visitor Parking’ for volunteers. If you are not sure please ask one of our staff members.
