Friendship Place Wish List

Holiday Meals

Thanksgiving is just 2 weeks away, and we need your help to provide a cheerful holiday for our participants! We would be grateful to receive gift cards to provide holiday meals for participants experiencing homelessness. Many of our participants do not have access to a kitchen. Gift cards allow participants to find food that they can eat and enjoy during the holidays. We can accept gift cards from food retail locations, such as Safeway, Giant, and Walmart, in denominations of $10 and up. Please mail or deliver your gift cards to Anne Marie Buron at 5100 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Suite 516, Washington, DC 20016. If you would like to donate a frozen turkey(s) or non-perishable food items, please contact Anne Marie Buron at aburon@friendshipplace.org or at 202-248-3090. We are grateful for your support!
