Warm Up, DC was a lot of fun, but the volunteers are the ones who really made a tremendous impact. If you’re wondering what the volunteers of Warm Up, DC did to help out, here are the numbers:
1) 20 bags of clothing
Meridian collected clothing at Cakelove and donated them to Martha’s Table. We also collected canned goods at G Sandwich, toiletries at Primp Beauty Bar, and new hats and scarves from Twice as Warm.
