Yesterday, a group of staff from ONE’s Washington D.C. office had the opportunity to step away from work, roll up their sleeves, and assist the local community by serving lunch to homeless and disadvantaged individuals at SOME – So Others May Eat. SOME was established in 1970 and has helped thousands of people get off the streets, transform their lives, find job opportunities, and live independently. While they are best known for providing food, serving 1,000 meals a day in their dining room, the organization has a comprehensive program fulfilling the full spectrum of needs of the community- showers and clothing, treating illnesses, delivering dental and mental health care, and administering job training classes. SOME is a great organization to get involved with if you are looking for volunteer opportunities in the D.C. area. You can give your time by volunteering and advocating for improved policies to better serve the homeless community, or give financially.
