On July 28, we had our second Day of Nurture in Franklin Square. Although there was a forecast for rain from 4pm when our event was scheduled to start, the weather was perfect -sunny and not excessively hot as it has been recently. In the span of an hour and a half, we had served a meal to over 100 people in the park. We also handed out water to people in the neighboring park.
Thank you to our sponsors for providing us with food and to all our wonderful volunteers who helped us in preparing food items, transporting the equipment to Franklin Square, serving meals, and conducting outreach.
We will be posting photos of the event soon, so keep checking back!
Don’t forget to join us on Sunday, July 29th for the Volunteer Appreciation Picnic at Malcolm X Park. For those of you not familiar with the park, Sundays are very lively at the Park! There are a range of activities from Drum Circle and Dance ( which is open to all) , tightrope walkers, yoga, to frisbee and soccer/bocce ball, etc. We’ll bring our blankets and some food and we hope to see you there! Feel free to bring along friends and something to share!

Despite the heat, Day of Connection and Exchange was still held in Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park. Many of you braved the heat and came by with your donations.
Take a look at the photos in our Facebook album.
If you have donations and were not able to make it to the event, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the conclusion of Day of Connection and Exchange, In One Day is officially complete. Thank you to all who have supported us to make what were ideas only 3 months ago a reality. We are so grateful and are inspired to even do more now knowing that anything is possible.
While the three events are complete, don’t forget that we have decided to repeat Day of Nurture monthly for the summer! We’ll be announcing the dates soon!
We know it’s going to be a scorcher tomorrow, but we’re still having the event tomorrow! We will be changing the time so we can start by 11 AM and end by 3 PM.
We hope you are still planning to come out tomorrow with your books, clothes, and toys! All of the corners are taking place in the shady areas of the park so hopefully that will provide us a bit of relief!
On hot days like tomorrow it is very important to keep yourself hydrated! Be sure to drink lots of water!!
Don’t forget to tweet us your pictures of your day in DC to @inonedaydc! All pictures submitted will later be featured on our website!
See you all tomorrow!
