Our chapter participated in SOME’s Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger on November 23rd at Freedom Plaza, Washington, DC
SOME’s Trot for Hunger is a 5K run and family walk held on Thanksgiving Day to benefit the homeless and poor in Washington, DC. The Trot provides essential support for SOME’s programs for the poor and homeless and helps ensure that hungry District residents have a hot meal on Thanksgiving Day and every other day of the year.
We all know that there are many adults and children in our community who are hungry and homeless. Unemployment and a lack of affordable housing have led to a significant increase in the number of homeless families.
SOME (So Others Might Eat) has been serving the homeless and poor in Washington, DC for 45 years. SOME began as a tiny soup kitchen and now provides more than 1,000 meals to hungry people each day. In addition, SOME provides clothing, medical care, job training, affordable housing, programs for the elderly and other services that empower individuals to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
