You would be mistaken.
In fact, just take a look at many of the service-learning projects recently completed by DC SCORES teams at 42 schools. Here are two examples:
- Bancroft Elementary School students raised over $1,000 to support the Washington Animal Rescue League that protects homeless animals in DC.
- H.D. Cooke Elementary School students received creative input from staff members at Words Beats & Life in creating a mural.
And they need your support.
That's why Do More 24 is so crucial. The United Way's giveathon this Thursday, June 6, is a one-day, 24-hour event to highlight the impactful work being done by nonprofits throughout the DMV and support those in need.
We encourage you to browse the long list of charities and choose a few that are near and dear to your heart to support — in addition, we hope, to DC SCORES.
As we continue to grow as an organization, our vision remains the same: To serve every child in the District deserving of being on a team.
Do More 24 is the chance for you to provide a soccer uniform — socks, shinguards, shorts and a school T-shirt — and, thus, a team for a child (or two). Our goal for the day?
- 500 soccer uniforms for kids currently lacking one.
So on June 6, visit our Do More 24 page to outfit a child for success within our program.
But don't stop there. Check out other nonprofits' pages and learn about the amazing work being done in support of those who really need it. Find causes you're passionate about and connect with them. Maybe you'll find the perfect volunteering opportunity. Perhaps you'll even discover your next job!
Whatever you get out of it, we promise you Do More 24 will be a rewarding experience.
Thanks for your support of DC nonprofits!
