Year-End Campaign

Year-End Campaign

Thanks to you, 8,000 women and children had clothing to get them through this year. On behalf of them, thank you for providing them their dignity.

We’re launching our 2018 Year-End Campaign. Our goal is to raise $75,000 by December 31st. If we raise that amount, we’ll be able to add another store day per month in 2019 and serve an additional 1,520 women and children next year.

We need your help to make it happen. Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goal?

WGB has made a day to remember for our girls from “She Believes in Me”! Thank you for partnering us to help girls in need. A girl on the bus was heard saying, “This is the best day of my life!”

We are also extremely thankful for the transportation provided. Without the bus, this day would not have been possible!

Volunteer Drives

Capital One Women’s Clothing Drive

Capital One based in McLean had a very successful women's clothing drive in October. They love to support WGB and women in our local community.

Capital One sorted the donations and delivered 370 articles of women's clothing. About 250 of those articles were professional wear (blouses, pants, blazers, skirts, dresses) and the remaining were non-professional (jeans, tee-shirts, etc).

We are so happy to partner with Capital One!
