RESIDENTS ACROSS 12 PROPERTIES CONTRIBUTE TO SUCCESSFUL CLOTHING DRIVE TO HELP DISENFRANCHISED WOMEN ACHIEVE GREATER INDEPENDENCE
WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, May 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In partnership with Women Giving Back (“WGB”), DARO hosted an extremely successful clothing drive for women in crisis over the past several weeks. Residents of DARO generously contributed more than 7 SUV-loads of clothing to WGB and the community they serve.
WGB seeks to provide clothing and resources to help women who have been – or are – at risk of abuse or homelessness, with the ultimate goal of helping these women achieve greater levels of independence and self-esteem. Committed WGB volunteers provide quality, personalized outreach to deepen bonds and build community.
DARO’s President, Carissa Barry, remarked: “As a Metropolitan D.C. based firm with over 2,000 residents across twelve properties, we take great pride in supporting organizations doing important community-building work. DARO and its residents are deeply committed to decency and civility – both of which are values inherent in WGB’s mission to empower disenfranchised women and help provide them with support and resources. We are grateful to be working side-by-side with WGB and to be contributing to the empowerment of the women they serve.”

About Women Giving Back (https://womengivingback.org)
In 2007, Women Giving Back started out as a core group of professional sales and marketing women from the homebuilding industry. They strive to give access to free quality clothing after finding this to be a barrier to many homeless women and their children while living in the local shelters. In 2015, WGB doubled its facility size with the completion of an addition through a partnership with HomeAid Northern Virginia.
Women Giving Back’s mission is to support women and children in crisis, and build their confidence and self-esteem, by providing great quality clothing at no cost, assisted by caring and committed volunteers who offer personalized service and interaction. WGB’s mission is more than clothes – their committed volunteers provide personal service and uplifting interaction in a unique boutique-like atmosphere, focused on helping women arrive at a level of self-confidence that enables them to improve their lives and achieve independence. The increased self-esteem that comes from securing and maintaining employment not only helps individual women, but contributes to stable families, which, in turn, improves to the viability and safety of our communities. To donate clothing, please contact Women Giving Back at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 554-9386.
