All across the DMV, Charm City Concierge hosted collections for tenants to donate new and gently used coats and winter gear. This annual event is always such a success due to the participation of our generous clients! The donated items will be distributed to local families in need.


About UCM

Charm City Concierge properties in Washington, DC and Northern Virginia collected over two carloads of coats and other warmth items to donate to UCM.

UCM is a reputable non-profit organization that provides resources and funds to those in need from our local community. Since its creation in 1969 it has been providing these services to people of all ages and walks of life leaving them empowered and protected. They work to create a link between people in need and people who are able to help. UCM is responsible for fantastic programs including UCM Early Learning Center, Stepping Stones, Healthy Families Fairfax, Forward Steps, Opportunity Neighborhood, Neighborhood & Leadership Development, Progresso Center for Literacy and Citizenship, and the Back Porch Thrift Store.


 

About The Transformation Center

md-coat-drive-17-2We were privileged to collect over 30 boxes and bags of coats and winter apparel for men, women and children in the surrounding Baltimore community! These donations will be distributed among those who are homeless in the downtown area and those who regularly visit the ministry for assistance.

Thank you to those who donated—your contributions are making a difference in the local Baltimore community and we appreciate the part that we get to play in making that difference!
