A Wider Circle: Health, Hope, & Human Connection

Outreach Sunday Supporting A Wider Circle


July 25

by the Outreach Committee

On Sunday, July 25th, please support A Wider Circle (AWC). AWC believes that love is a verb – what matters is not what we say we care about, but what each of us does, every day.

In 2001, when American University professor Dr. Mark Bergel volunteered along with his students to deliver food to needy families, he was dismayed to see that many apartments lacked beds, dressers, and other furniture. He responded by founding AWC in his living room with the simple but ambitious mission to end poverty. Since then, AWC has grown tremendously, extending beyond the Essential Support program that continues to provide furniture and other basics, to offer job training, professional clothing, housing support, and neighborhood partnerships. AWC recently resumed its pickup service for furniture donations. Learn more.

Please give generously using one of the following methods on July 25th, remembering that love is a verb.
