  • This event has passed.

You can provide a warm coat, hat, or gloves to an unhoused neighbor this year with just the click of your mouse! Friendship Place’s congregational partners are collecting new winter outerwear via an Amazon wish list. Please make your donation promptly so that it will be delivered no later than November 7.


Select the “Winter Warmth Gift Registry Address” and your donation will be shipped directly to Washington Hebrew Congregation, where items will be sorted for distribution to hundreds of men, women, and children served by Friendship Place – those living on the street, in short-term housing facilities, and in permanent supportive housing.

This “virtual” approach to Winter Warmth was developed in 2020 when Covid concerns forced the cancellation of the long-standing December giveaway event at WHC where individuals could “shop” for winter clothing. But there was a silver lining. This more focused approach, coupled with the generosity of hundreds of contributors, allowed Friendship Place to supply items to a far larger number of individuals in their care.
