BENEFITING: NEW ENDEAVORS BY WOMEN
Friends of NEW are stepping up to fight homelessness! Join or host a community walk to benefit New Endeavors by Women (NEW). Your support will help NEW serve 200 homeless women and children in Washington, DC.
Donations of any amount are welcome and appreciated! Suggested donations for participating in the Walk for NEW are:
YOUTH under age 25: $10 to $20
ADULT over age 25: $20 and Up
Since 1999, our community walks have rallied more than 45,000 supporters of all ages, and their efforts have raised over $300,000 for NEW's five housing programs! This year NEW hopes to raise $25,000 through community walks hosted from September to November.
Sponsorships also welcome!
Gold Level: $10,000
Silver Level: $5,000
SPONSORSHIPS: Sponsors' generosity funds our walkers from DC Public Schools (DCPS). Every $10 raised through sponsors funds one DCPS walker. We anticipate over 1,300 DCPS students in grades K to 12 to walk for NEW this year. Our DCPS school partners include: Key Elementary School, Brightwood Education Campus, Amidon-Bowen Elementary School and Center City Public Charter School. In addition to walking, students complete an education activity (such as an essay assignment, poster contest, video project) to learn about homelessness, and they participate in an interactive session with NEW staff to learn about our programs and how they can help end homelessness!
Thank you for giving generously in support of our work!
