NOVEMBER 2017: HOLIDAY PROJECT DC RECOGNIZED BY TRAVELOCITY AS A FACTOR IN NAMING DC ONE OF 25 MOST GIVING CITIES IN THE US
The Holiday Project's Washington DC chapter has been cited as a factor in recognizing DC as one of the 25 most giving cities in the US by online travel guide Travelosity. The article reads as follows:
Our tax dollars and national budget may work to fund the government programs in our nation’s capital, but those who live inside the Beltway year-round put their money, time, and energy toward all sorts of charitable causes. With a 5K to End HIV, the Capital Area Food Bank, a DC chapter for The Holiday Project, and the various programs offered through SOME—like their Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger and annual dinner gala and silent auction—Washingtonians represent themselves very well in terms of volunteerism. Cast your ballot by supporting any of these impressive charitable causes the next time you are in our nation’s capital.
Thank yoy Travelosity for helping us spread the word regarding our worthwhile cause.
