Community Science Participates in a Day of Service

Community Science participated in its biannual day of service at A Wider Circle on September 18, 2015. A Wider Circle is a nonprofit organization with a mission to end poverty. Through programs targeting job preparedness, health and wellness, and housing, A Wider Circle addresses the needs of the whole person. One of their programs, Neighbor-to-Neighbor, provides beds, dressers, tables, and other large and small home goods free of charge to individuals in need. Earlier in 2015, A Wider Circle opened a program office in Barry Farm, a neighborhood in Southeast Washington, DC. At this facility, A Wider Circle is partnering with community residents and various service providers to offer job and life skills training, youth mentoring, a relaxation area, and a pantry.  Community Science staff spent the day sorting donated items such as furniture, linens and household goods, and children’s toys,  stocking the organization’s showroom, and helping families load furniture.
