When Charles and Jennifer relocated to the DC area this past summer, they knew that they wanted to continue building their nonprofit despite not knowing the area and wanted to assist other organizations as much as they could. Jennifer came to Charles and asked what he thought about her introducing the idea of some volunteer opportunities to the women on the team. He told her to go for it. Jennifer was hesitant for quite some time being new to the area and not knowing many people, so it came as a big surprise to her when she presented the idea to the women that so many were willing to donate money and their time. Jennifer gathered over $1,500 from women on the team and then purchased items of need for the organization Women Giving Back, including underwear, socks, workout clothing, hats, gloves, and nearly 100 snack packs from Beyond the Entertainer.
Women Giving Back is an organization that helps women and children in crisis by giving them clothing at no cost. While volunteering with this organization, the women of the Washington Football Team had the opportunity to visit the warehouse and store, sort through donated items, prepare the store for shopping, and even make outfits for visitors to get when they arrive. The snack packs that were donated each included two breakfast items, two lunch/dinner items, two snacks, a water bottle, and a juice box. These snack packs are given out to the women that come in for their children to have quick and easy meals when they are home.
