 Generous Local Stars “Show Some Love”

To DC’s Homeless Neighbors

Washington, DC – On Friday, December 15, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm, Central Union Mission will host its third annual Show Some Love event.  Through the generous donations of Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated,  The Warrior’s Movement and private donors, the Mission will be preparing an elegant dinner for our Overnight Guests. We are excited to announce a special appearance by media legend Mr. Donnie Simpson.

Starting at 1:00 pm, shelter guests will be treated to free haircuts donated by volunteer stylists and fresh clothing from the Mission’s Haberdashery so they can enjoy their party in style.

According to Mission Executive Director David Treadwell, “What makes this event unique is that the extra touches volunteers provide make our men feel valued, which adds to their confidence. It takes a lot of confidence to renovate your life from being homeless to bring a productive part of society, and Central Union Mission’s goal is to help that happen.”

Media is invited to attend. RSVP requested.

Please contact Deborah Chambers at 202-534-9965 cell or to coordinate interviews or receive media entrance.
