CPDC and Partners Kick off the Holiday Season by Giving Back to Residents
November 23, 2016
Each year, the month of November brings season’s change and ushers in the holiday season.
For CPDC staff, partners and volunteers, this time of year means doing even more to give back to our communities and help ensure the holidays are happy and enjoyable for CPDC residents.
For Thanksgiving, residents of multiple CPDC communities benefited from acts of kindness and generosity thanks to the dedication of CPDC staff, volunteers and local partners.
Here are a few highlights:
- DC non-profit Bread for the City donated 40 turkey baskets for CPDC seniors at our Northwest DC Wardman Court and 1330 communities. Bread for the City provides groceries to thousands of DC residents, feeding on average more than 8,400 people each month.
- In Southeast, DC’s Ward 8, senior volunteers from CPDC and partner Emmaus Services for the Aging distributed turkeys and fixings for Thanksgiving to approximately 200 residents. The effort was based out of the food pantry at our Wheeler Terrace community.
- CPDC Community Impact Strategies staff at communities including Cedar Heights, Arbor View and Meadowbrook Run organized events for residents to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal, activities and fellowship with neighbors.
