Join Us For BKK Cookshop’s Terrific Tuesday on 2/21/2017

$10 a month will buy healthy snacks for our after school program.We asked, and you responded. If you are one of loyal supporters who has become a a sustaining giver and a Partner for the Future  through our monthly giving program — THANK YOU!

You can give at any level, from $10 to $100 per month. And every dollar counts. Did you know that $10 a month — roughly 30 cents a day — will buy after-school snacks for one of the kids in our after school programs? It’s a small act of kindness that can make all the difference to a family trying to keep a kid in school.

We are grateful for your support, whether it is $.30 or $30 a day. Which is why we’d like to invite you to come to a fun event.

BKK Cookshop (1700 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001) is hosting us at one of their Terrific Tuesday fundraisers! February 21, 2017 from 5 – 10 pm.  

BKK will generously donate 10% of dine-in dinner sales to NEW. Please do come, bring your friends, and spread the word.

Want an incentive? Feast your eyes.

You eat well, and have fun while supporting the women and children at NEW. What’s not to love? It’s a win-win, and we’d love to see you there.

Please join us! February 21, 2017 from 5 – 10 pm, at BKK Cookshop, 1700 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001

Partners For The Future

Partners For The Future
monthlygivingThe world carries on, the winter sets in, and all of us await spring. But the women and children of NEW don’t wait for a fresh start — because there is no time like the present to build a new future!

 

We’ve also learned that it’s the small acts that matter. They don’t just keep hope alive, they help with that first concrete step toward a new beginning. And they’re possible — for everyone. It’s a bit like the new year’s resolutions. By February, losing X pounds/exercising everyday/eating healthy seems like a combination of joyless and impossible. But keeping that one soda away at lunch is doable. Taking the stairs is not impossible. The small things keep us going.

 

For the people in our care, the small things make all the difference — like the Metro cards you sent after the Women’s March and the Valentine cards now arriving. Your small acts enable the people at NEW to keep moving.

 

So let’s make a lasting difference together. Become a sustaining giver this year. Join our Partners for the Future monthly giving program. You might forego a couple of skinny lattes in order to sign up to donate $10 a month. It’s a small action, but it compounds to a big impact for a homeless woman or child.

 

Here’s to Partners for the Future – and that first step!

O Christmas Tree!

new-christmas-treeWhat do the White House, the Big Apple and New Endeavors by Women have in common? This past week we all hosted our own Christmas Tree Lighting!

Although our lighting ceremony was not as high profile as Pennsylvania Avenue or Rockefeller Center, we think our tree shines just as bright. A beautiful tree stands tall in our lobby, greeting residents and guests alike with holiday cheer.  Read more
