Our Place, DC Toy Drive Mixer
Friday, December 11, 2009 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EST)
The December holiday season presents the occasion to spread good cheer, spend time with family, and give to those less fortunate than ourselves! While for many people this is how the holidays are spent, we’d like you to take a moment to think about a very special population of children who face a very different holiday reality – children of incarcerated women.
Our Place DC clients' children spend precious days, months, even years without their mothers, so for one day, we invite them to a party, just for them. We provide all the frills of the holiday season: gingerbread men, candy canes, Christmas trees, Santa and his trusty elves, lots of yummy food and lastly, toys, toys, toys! Our Place, DC kindly requests your support in providing a memorable holiday for these courageous children.
Join us at Pasha Lounge on Friday, December 11th for a toy and book drive; and mix and mingle. Your admission is free.
*NOTE: If you cannot attend and would like to make a donation, kindly make donations via Network for Good-
