Thankful for the generous support of National Capital Bank 💙

This year more than ever, we have been incredible inspired by our community organizations who have faced this year’s highs, lows and everything in-between with grace, grit and courage. They have persevered through countless obstacles to provide essential resources and services to those in need, illustrating a steadfast commitment to serve our community no matter the circumstances.

In lieu of our Annual Holiday Open House, the NCB Foundation is honored to donate $20,000 to benefit the following organizations whose annual events and initiatives have been impacted by the pandemic: Barracks Row, Capitol Hill Cluster School PTA, National Capital Treatment & Recovery, My Sister's Place, Inc., and Ready, Willing & Working.

Thank you for your business and confidence in our bank. We wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year and look forward to continuing our work with you in 2021 and beyond. #NationalCapitalBank #BankOnUs #HappyHolidays #CharitableGiving

Day #3: Ready, Willing & Working
👋
Ready, Willing & Working (RWW) empowers individuals to break the cycles of homelessness, welfare dependency and criminal recidivism through a paid-work rehabilitation program. RWW offers a holistic approach and supportive services that allow participants to achieve permanent self-sufficiency. WW is the holistic approach that #WashDC needs to provide the Continuum of Care for those who are currently living on the streets, in DC shelters and returning to their neighborhoods after years of incarceration.

Happy #GivingTuesday! This year the COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges to us all. Without the ability to host our annual fundraising gala, Magic & Miracles, Ready, Willing & Working is experiencing an unprecedented need for financial support.

For nearly 13 years, RWW had been proving that the most effective solution to homelessness and criminal recidivism is the opportunity for paid work and supportive services. With the help of contributions from generous donors, RWW has opened the door for hundreds of men to become and remain responsible citizens, fathers to their children, and role models for their community.

Together we are continuing to provide opportunities for people who so desperately want to work, to lift themselves out of poverty, to escape destructive cycles and to be included in mainstream society.

Thank you for considering Ready, Willing & Working on this Giving Tuesday! http://www.rwwdc.org/donate/

The Capitol Hill Swag fundraiser ends in FOUR DAYS! Shopping today is not only great for getting ahead on holidays gifts, but also an opportunity for end of year giving.

For the past 11 years, the Annual Magic & Miracles Gala has been a critical event for raising funds for Ready, Willing & Working. We are unable to hold the gala this year due to the pandemic and need your support more now than ever.

The Capitol Hill Swag Fundraiser is an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. All sales help RWW continue to provide workers with supportive services such as weekly case management group meetings, one-on-one counseling and transportation funds.

With your Capitol Hill Swag purchase or additional donation, the men and women in RWW can continue to become self-sufficient and contributing members of society and enrich the communities they live in.

Thank you and please share the fundraiser with friends and family!

As I count my blessings and give thanks to what matters in life, my heart is full of thanks for people & programs that create positive, long-term impact on families and communities. Ready, Willing & Working is exceptional and I'm so thankful!
One Capitol Hill organization that is always working hard for you. They deserve your support don't you think?
Thanks for being the inspiration for our Colfax Works program, Ready, Willing & Working!
WOW!! The good news is: Ready, Willing & Working is in the final round. The nervous news is: we're #8 out of 12. We need to be at least #6 in order to win a $10,000 grant so PLEASE VOTE and ask your friends to vote for us. Just 8 days of voting left and every vote gets us closer to the $10,000 grant. moonshare.org
Another reminder friends! We're doing well and hope to be in the top half that moves to the second round on January 11th. With your help, we're getting closer to the $10,000 grant~! Thank you!
