Just In Time
This comes just in time as Arctic winds are expected to hit Washington, DC Wednesday – Friday this week. Temperatures will drop to the mid 20’s at night and struggle to rise above 40 degrees. The full outfitting Thrive DC was able to provide will hopefully prove lifesaving support to the individuals living outside in the freezing weather, risking hypothermia.
More To Come
Despite the strong showing this past Friday, Thrive DC will be hosting two more Coat Drives throughout the winter. Please help us spread the word to continue collecting much needed welcome warmth for our clients.
