1)  DC Diaper Bank: DC Diaper Bank works to provide an adequate and reliable supply of diapers to babies, toddlers and their families in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.  Volunteers will be working at the warehouse to count and sort diapers.  Volunteers are asked to bring donations of diapers. 

2)  A Wider Circle: A Wider Circle's mission is to end poverty for one individual and one family after another.  Its efforts focus on the provision of basic need items, education and long-term support.  Volunteers will be working at the warehouse, sorting and moving furniture, toys, linens, etc. 

ACW will provide transportation, lunch, and snack.  We will meet in the Banneker A Room at Stamp for lunch and a briefing before we depart.  Please plan to be there at 11:45 AM to register, with lunch to follow.  After visits to the locations, we will meet again in the Banneker A Room for snack and discussion.  The ACW volunteer day will end around 4:30 PM.
