Preparations Started To Help Homeless People In D.C. Area In The Colder Months

A preview of winter’s chill along with holiday lights and symbols have started to appear. Preparations are also underway to help the homeless in the colder months. A Virginia-based organization is doubling its efforts during this final stretch of the year. This organization usually holds a monthly event to help the homeless.

According to wtop.com, “Folks with The 25th Project usually do some act of service on the 25th of each month. Most of the service projects revolve around food-related themes like a chili cook-off in January, a Soup and Socks event in February, and the Mac and Cheese Bowl for October. But now that there’s a chill in the air, the organization is looking for donations to help those experiencing homelessness stay warm.”

Jay Herriott, founder of The 25th Project said, “[On Nov. 25] we’ll do propane so that people will have propane to heat their tents. Usually, we’re looking for mashed potatoes, sides, dressing for the turkey and for the ham. We usually have a lot of meat, but we’re always looking for mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes and pie and bread.”

As per wtop.com, “Those wanting to help can bring hot food to Burke Community Church, at 9900 Old Keene Mill Road in Burke, starting at 8:30 a.m. on Thanksgiving. The 25th Project’s concept started in 2002 when Herriott and his daughters gave out some Christmas Day meals to folks who made homes underneath bridges in D.C. The organization’s name is inspired by the year 2010 when the varying date of Thanksgiving aligned with the static date of Christmas — the 25th.”
