According to DC Poverty Demographics, one in ten residents live in extreme poverty or well below the poverty line, with the hardest hit being black District residents, female-headed households and Hispanic residents.
At The HR Source, we believe every D.C. resident should have a safe place to call home. Years ago, we created a mandate to aid DC’s underserved and over the years we’ve partnered with numerous organizations to increase awareness and raise funds to fight homelessness and poverty. And, now we are asking your help.
On Thursday, September 21st between 5:30 and 8:30pm, we are holding an extraordinary event called Bite Night, with proceeds going to two phenomenal D.C. charities – A Wider Circle and Street Sense – that help people dealing with homelessness and poverty.
We are asking organizations to support us in our fight against poverty and homelessness in the DMV area, through various sponsorship opportunities on Bite Night.
Sponsorships are a wonderful way to increase your brand awareness, generate consumer preference and foster brand loyalty. It allows you to create positive PR, while raising awareness of for your organization as well as a great cause.
A Wider Circle is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of the homeless in a complete sense, spiritually, mentally, and physically. Through a series of programs such as job training and career development, housing and furnishing assistance, food donations, and much more; A Wider Circle and their efforts have improved over 4000 homes each year since their inception in 2001.
Street Sense is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of the homeless and impoverished. Through their unique vendor and newspaper program, Street Sense has developed a source of income to the homeless and impoverished. Through their tailored vision and hands on approach to assisting low income families, they have worked to provide more than just a way to support themselves and their families; they have provided an opportunity to a second chance, at hope.
