Mission Market & Fair
This is an alternative gifts market sponsored every fall before the beginning of the Christmas season, encouraging members to shop responsibly and in a way that gives back. We partner with our domestic and international mission partners, Heifer International, Equal Exchange, SERVV, and others in order to facilitate Christmas giving that supports the work of justice here and around the world.
Home for Aged Women
Each year, we reach out to people who are sometime overlooked with our Easter Basket Campaign. This year we donated beautiful baskets filled by members of the congregation and had a time of fellowship. Twelve baskets went to women living at the Home for Aged Women on Wisconsin Avenue here in Georgetown. They were extremely grateful for the gifts and conversation with members of the congregation.
BAGázs Public Benefit Association was started by 13 volunteers who participated actively in the organizing of a summer camp in 2010 in Bag, a village of 4500 in Hungary with a segregated population of about 500 Roma who are served directly. Bagazs sets out to use the methods of non-formal education and volunteerism to enable the youth of Bag to work towards their self-defined goals and to enhance their freedom to choose their own path in life, breaking the cycle of poverty.
