Each year since 2013, we collected over 200 new and gently used coats to gift on Christmas Day. With the onset of the novel coronavirus, we are collecting cash donations to purchase new coats for men and women to receive this year.
Give $25 toward the purchase of a new winter coat, and join us on December 25th as we bless neighbors again this year.

The Widow’s Pantry is in the planning stages of hosting a fundraiser to heighten our introduction to life skill sessions for our clients. We want to provide items of necessities while engaging our clients to participate in life skills and information resource sessions.
We were scheduled to host an African American Tea Ceremony fundraiser on Saturday May 16, 2020, at the Silver Spring Civic Center. The event is postponed due to COVID-19. This event is rescheduled for Saturday, February 20, 2021.
Date To Be Announced
Each year, The Widow’s Pantry invites current leaders, volunteers, and supporters to participate in training to demonstrate the power and ability to serve God’s people through Christian outreach.
As the country continues to practice caring and safe measures to limit social interaction, we too are looking at ways to engage and stay connected — albeit without in-person events. We look forward to announcing a date and location (including the prospect of a virtual event).

This was our 6th annual walk, hosted virtually for the first year! We met our goal to raise $4,000!
Proceeds from your generous donation will be used to purchase new winter coats for distribution on Christmas Day.
A very special thank you to our 2020 Virtual Walk Sponsors that made sure our administrative resources were taken care of. Thank you to everyone that walked and/or made a pledge or donation.

We were able to raise over $10,000 from the event and 100 percent of the proceeds will be directly donated to our efforts to feed, clothe and provide spiritual encouragement to the homeless, unemployed and underemployed families of Washington DC and the vicinity.
