Yachad to be Honored

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Rachael’s Women’s Center will honor Yachad with the Building Bridges Award on Wednesday, May 23rd at 6pm at 1222 11th St, NW.

Yachad has been working to rehab the center’s building in the Mt. Vernon, DC neighborhood since early this year. The building, which houses the center’s programs for homeless women and men, has received nearly $9,000 in market value repairs since Yachad began their volunteer-driven work on MLK Day. Four volunteer groups, two construction companies, and nearly 75 individual volunteers will have put man hours toward the project by April 29th (the last volunteer group assigned).

We invite all of you who have worked on the project, to join us for this celebration as the award is just as much yours as Yachad’s.
