WHEN: Sunday, January 7, 2018 from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM

WHERE: Franklin Square, 1300 I St NW, Washington, DC 21223

It’s that time of year when Ket Doan hosts the annual Winter Edition for the Food For the Homless event!

What makes this event different from our other Food For the Homeless events is that we will pass out hygiene packets, winter coats/sweaters, gloves, hats, blankets, and socks on top of the usual food items we pass out. Our goal this year is to pass out enough food servings, hygiene packets, and clothing for 200 homeless people at Franklin Square.

If you have any questions about volunteering, donating food, or you would like to make contributions to our winter clothes fund, please message us or make a post below. You can message us via facebook (Ket Doan Association) or contact our coordinator Natasha Huynh
