BRAWS at WGB

BRAWS distributed about 100 bras and 100 boxes of tampons/pads to very excited clients! We’re so happy that BRAWS could help so many wonderful women and girls in need! A special thank you to Jill, Pratima (and mom), Marcie, Julie, and Taylor for volunteering with BRAWS this very hot Saturday morning!

School Supplies Drive

We're kicking off our school supply drive! Please consider donating new school supplies between now and our September 10th shopping day.

The smile on the kids and moms faces when they see their new backpacks, pencils and pens, notebooks, gold stars and more is priceless.

You can drop off at 20 Export Dr, Sterling, VA 20164, connect with a friend who is involved with the organization (they'll be happy to pick up!), consider hosting a drive at your office or children's summer camp or call us at (703) 554-9386 and we'll coordinate a pick up.

Stories from the Store

Dear WGB,

Thank you so much for all you had done for me. You provided me with clothing when I did not have any.

Again, Thank You so much. You probably do not remember who I am because you help so many people. I would not ever stop remembering you. You have such an amazing huge heart. Huge hugs to you and your team. All of you are amazingly wonderful.

Today I live in a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment. This apartment is huge. Everyday I Thank GOD & EVERYONE who helped me along my journey.

Also before I moved into my apartment, last year I was Saved and Baptized in a Southern Baptist Church. Everyday I feel Blessed because I had people who believed in me and that there is huge to a person who felt so very lost. Again I Thank You & Your Team with all my heart.

– Sincerely Shannan O.

Good Day Friends at Women Giving Back!

I write to thank you for your generous and beautiful contribution to our drive for the students at New Hampshire Estates Elementary School impacted by the August 14 Long Branch apartment fire. The items you donated will be offered to the students and their families on an upcoming "shopping day" here at the church.

It was a pleasure to meet you all on Saturday and hear about your great work in Sterling VA. We would love to stay connected and would be glad to partner again in the future.

Best wishes and thanks again!

– Nana (Clifton Park Baptist Church)

We picked up an amazing donation of school supplies from FCi Federal’s employees. Our kids are going to be thrilled. Not sure if the sequined Star Wars or the Hello Kitty back pack was the cutest! Thanks so much FCi.
