The need for services from food banks and a variety of other local nonprofits has increased dramatically in recent years, and that need often outpaces organizations' resources to help. The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region bolsters DC neighborhoods by helping to fund more than 115 area nonprofit programs.
The Neighbors in Need Fund is a project of the Community Foundation that responds to economic hardship with donations of food, clothing, shelter, and aid with foreclosure prevention. The fund also reinforces community support networks, such as medical and mental care facilities. The Neighbors in Need Fund distributes food and funds across the region through more than 700 partner organizations and has provided aid to more than 100,000 people since its inception in 2008.
Join G-Team and donate $10, $25, or $50 to help the Neighbors in Need Fund provide meals to families suffering from financial hardships, with matching donations from its parent organization, The Community Foundation. If G-Team members raise $400, the Neighbors in Need Fund will be able to provide 1,200 meals to DC-area families through its network of partner organizations. Each additional $10 raised will purchase another 30 meals for hungry people.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
