Dear FRIENDS and PARTNERS:

Happy Holidays!!!! for Jesus is the REASON for the SEASON,

As we prepare for our annual November 18th Thanksgiving Basket Give Away  Rally being held at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church located at 215 Rhode Island Ave. NW at 10:00am we encourage families needing food  for their Thanksgiving Meal with family and friends to come be with us.   This year our toy give away Rally will be held on Saturday, December 16th and will be held at Edgewood Terrace.  Please consider partnering with us as we also celebrate 30 years of partnering with McLean Bible Church sponsoring outreach rallies in DC. 

We are looking for Mentors and Tutors to work with Children and Adults:

Mentoring and Tutoring is the Buss Word for projects that we are working on in the schools and the community.  Should you be interested in working with KIDZ needing help in all academic subjects, or being a mentor for a Teen Mom or  mentoring incarcerated youth at the Detention Center, please send us an email to: Extensioncenter@comcast.net

We are also looking for volunteers to work as apprentices on various community projects, should you be a college student, senior citizen, or newly retired person, we would like to meet with you to discuss how we can work together making a  positive difference in the lives of children, youth and families living in inner city neighborhoods. .   

Accomplishments for 2016 included:

  • On December 17th at theToys to Needy KIDZ Rally allowed us to impact 2500 children which consisted of: providing 134 families (who were physically present with their children at the rally gifts)  additionally in this amount, we provided gifts to children in the community;  and families of youth incarcerated at the Department of Youth Rehabilitative Services  gifts was phenomenal.
