On June 19 the United Way is hosting Do More 24, a 24-hour online fundraising event that encourages everyone to donate to non-profit organizations in the National Capital Area.

Carpenter’s Shelter is proud to be among the many non-profit organizations participating in Do More 24. This is more than a fundraiser; it’s your chance to advocate for the homeless in the Alexandria area.

Carpenter’s has remained dedicated to serving the City of Alexandria, and relies heavily on the donations from members of the community in order to continue to provide vital services to those living at Carpenter’s Shelter.

Help Carpenter’s by donating HERE.

$24 would provide twin size sheets for one of our 80 beds. $48 would provide one of our clients a metro card for a week of job searching. $96 would provide two weeks of after school snacks for the children in the shelter.

Fundraising begins at 12 am on June 19. Be sure to watch our Twitter and Facebook feeds for donation updates.

There are many wonderful non-profits participating in Do More 24, and we appreciate you choosing Carpenter’s Shelter as your charity of choice.
