7x24 Exchange, DC Chapter, partnered with Women Giving Back (WGB) organization and held a backpack and school supply party on Thursday, July 18th. The 7x24 organization and members purchased backpacks and school supplies for elementary and middle/high school students. Along with the necessary supplies, an inspirational note was hand written and placed in over 60 backpacks for each child that will receive through this program. This jump started the backpack/school supplies donation drive for WGB who’s mission is to support women and children in crises, and build their confidence and self-esteem. Last year WGB provided 460 children from low‐income families (most in shelters) with back to school supplies.
Women Giving Back’s main purpose is to provide great quality clothing at no cost, assisted by caring and committed volunteers who offer personalized service and interaction. Their clients have the opportunity to ‘shop’ in WGB’s store for clothing and shoes for themselves and their families. They also have special shopping events throughout the year in celebrating Valentine’s Day, Prom, Mother’s Day, Back to School, Halloween and even provide toys at Santa’s workshop in December. These events are held in their seasonal room in which inventory changes based on the time of year.
WGB is a registered 501(c) organization located in Sterling, Virginia. In 2018 they were able to serve over 9,960 women and children that needed their services. Women Giving Back is run primarily through their volunteer program. How can you help?
