Update: Donation Results

thank you

As of October 17, 2021, we have provided Friendship Place with 575 household items for a total of $21,231.46 worth of supplies via Amazon!

We are so grateful for your boundless, continued generosity. THANK YOU!


Please join Machon Micah’s 6th graders this High Holiday season for a twist on one of Temple Micah’s most important mitzvah projects: providing dignity to the area’s homeless in partnership with Friendship Place, a local community-based organization that works with the District’s homeless.

For 20 years, our community has provided Friendship Place with thousands of pairs of new underwear each year, but due to the tremendous success of last year’s drive, coupled with a different flow of needs due to Covid-19, Friendship Place has plenty of underwear to support the homeless for the coming year.

But as you know, there continues to be plenty of need in the District. So instead of underwear, this year we will help bring dignity home by supporting Friendship Place’s Neighbors First program, which provides Permanent Supportive Housing for highly-vulnerable, chronically-homeless families and individuals. Each quarter, Friendship Place places ~100 families and individuals in Permanent Supportive Housing. We are going to help those families and individuals make their new house a home, by providing linens, kitchen supplies, cleaning supplies and more.

HOW YOU CAN DO YOUR PART:

  • Purchase linens, cleaning supplies, kitchen items or any other items from this list from any store you like, including from Black-Owned Businesses compiled during Micah’s Racial Justice program, and have them sent to:

            Friendship Place ℅ Chris Cannedy

            3655 Calvert St NW

            Washington, DC  20007

  • Purchase items from the Friendship Place Amazon page here and have them sent to Chris Cannedy at Friendship Place (the address should appear on your checkout page).
  • Make a donation directly to Friendship Place here.
  • Please do not worry if you receive a notification saying “delivery has been attempted.” If the Friendship Place is not present for the delivery, they will receive it the next day. You do not need to do anything.
