Thrive DC at White House Market

Here's a cool event happening today. 

Thrive DC will be at the Freshfarm  Market by the White House to announce a cool partnership with DC based Zipcar. You can of course attend the market and pick up some local, good-for-you vegetables. But in addition you'll be able to sign up and help Thrive DC with it's mission: providing wide ranging, diverse services to DC's homeless population. 

Thrive DC is working with Zipcar to deliver donated goods to where they need to be across DC and you can volunteer to help out as well. Not sure of the details regarding logistics, but Zipcar will encourage members to use its cars to deliver donated materials and food to Thrive DC locations/offices. If you're interested, ask about the arrangement at the market.

You can also bring items that Thrive DC consistently needs: travel sized toiletries, new unworn undergarments and new unworn socks. Enjoy the market and help out a great DC organization as well.

The Freshfarm Market at the White House is located at 810 Vermont Ave NW, b/t H and I Sts. It happens on Thursdays from 3-7PM. Visit with Thrive DC and Zipcar from 4-6PM.
