Miriam's Kitchen is a great organization that we would like to recognize today, Jennifer Woofter has volunteered there in the past and with Give to the Max Day we thought it would be a perfect time to cheer them on. Miriam's Kitchen provides free, homemade meals and high-quality support services to more than 4,000 homeless men and women each year in Washington, DC. Nearly 80 percent of Miriam's Kitchen's guests live on the streets of DC, in parks around the city, under the bridges along the Potomac River, and in emergency shelters. Many of Miriam's Kitchen's guests suffer from severe mental illnesses and addictions, making them the most fragile and hardest to connect with social services.
If you would like to support Miriam’s Kitchen (or any of the other great nonprofits serving the area), Give to the Max Day: Greater Washington is a great way to help. Give to the Max Day is a one-day fundraising event on November 9, 2011 that will unite local Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC communities to support nonprofits serving the area. The goal of Give to the Max Day is to have 35,000 people give to their favorite regional charity, raising more than $3 million in donations and grants in just 24 hours!
