WHF Foundation Sponsors February Partner Drive for Bridges to Independence: Raises Critical Resources for Homeless Families
The WHF Foundation (WHFF) is sponsoring a February Partner Drive for its non-profit partner, Bridges to Independence, formerly the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless (AACH). With its nearly 30 years of work transitioning homeless families into apartments and houses across Northern Virginia, the organization itself is going through a transition as it becomes Bridges to Independence.
The February Partner Drive spotlights its non-profit partner and the tremendous work they are doing to support families in the community. WHFF is seeking donations of gift cards from Target, WalMart, VISA, etc., Metro fare cards and will also accept cash/check donations to be converted into gift cards. These gifts will go directly to benefit the families of Bridges to Independence.
