The Warriors Movement and Walmart Are Showing the Love to Homeless Guests


* * * *

WHAT:

Volunteers from The Warrior Movement will prepare, host and serve a holiday meal for our Overnight Guests with their “Everybody Eatz” pop-up café. Walmart is our generous sponsor. Shelter guests will be treated to free haircuts and fresh clothing from the Mission’s Haberdashery so they can enjoy their party in style.

WHO: Chef Tony Beverly, Taste of The DMV owner and chef at National Harbor’s Granite City and Chef
Karen Delos Reyes
 of the Gaylord at National Harbor are volunteering with their teams to prepare a three-entree menu from which the men may choose. We are also excited to announce a
special appearance by media legend, Mr. Donnie Simpson.

WHEN:

Friday, December 16, 2016, at 5:00pm-9:00pm;  haircuts and clothing available at 3:00 pm

WHERE:

Dining Hall at the Gales School Building 
65 Massachusetts Avenue, NW 
Washington, DC  20001

WHY: According to Erin Dorsey, CEO of The Warriors Movement,  “Having lived in the DC area my whole life and seeing the constant struggle that so many men and women face in the homeless community, I believe serving this meal  is the least that we can do.  We assemble good people who are just looking to do something for someone other than themselves and really give back to some men who are turning their lives around for the better. It’s important that they know that their community cares. And it’s important that we show them that we care.”
