Description

Join Cultural Vistas for an Exchange Day packing party to support families in need in the Washington, DC metro area on Saturday, August 3.

This August, for the sixth year in a row, thousands of exchange program participants will come together for Exchange Day (previously J Day), a nationwide celebration of international education and the Exchange Visitor Program.

To celebrate the occasion, Cultural Vistas will be hosting a packing party to support the Bread for the City and assembling donation kits with nonperishable snacks and more essentials for families in the metro D.C. area.

The packing party will be followed immediately by a picnic-style lunch and games.

The suggested admission fee to the event is a donation of one of the following items, all of which will also be donated to Bread for the City as part of a Cultural Vistas-organized collection drive.

  • Toothbrushes (unused)
  • Toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Bar soap
  • Diapers of all sizes
  • Low-sugar breakfast cereal
  • Oatmeal (any kind)
  • Gift cards to local grocery stores

###

All exchange interns who participate in this year's event will be eligible to win a stay of up to 3 nights at any one of Hostelling International USA hostels across the country. In 2018, 47 events were held across 24 states and the District, providing international students and their hosts an opportunity to enjoy American cuisine, share cultural diversity and customs, and give back to their local communities.
