The Washington Post Helping Hand seeks to facilitate significant financial donations directly to human service nonprofit organizations in the Washington, D.C. metro area through high-impact, in-depth narratives about those in need and the programs that assist them.
The Washington Post Helping Hand, a charitable giving initiative, today announced the selection of Bread for the City, Friendship Place and Miriam’s Kitchen as the three beneficiaries of the 2021-2023 cycle. Over the next three winter holiday seasons, Local Columnist John Kelly will highlight the work of each nonprofit through bi-weekly “John Kelly’s Washington” columns in The Washington Post. Post Helping Hand will help facilitate direct donations from readers to the nonprofits through Kelly’s column.
The Washington Post is launching its third cycle of Helping Hand, a nonprofit giving initiative started by The Post to help connect the D.C. community with local nonprofit organizations. Helping Hand is currently seeking letters of inquiry from human services nonprofits that work toward the prevention and remediation of hunger, homelessness and poverty, in the Washington, D.C. area for a three-year commitment.
The Washington Post Helping Hand announced it has successfully raised over $250,000 in the 2018-2019 season bringing the total funds raised to $1.14 million since the charitable giving initiative began in 2014.
