Towel Brigade: May 6-22

Help the kids at Martha's Table stay Cool in the Pool this summer!

The D.C. public pools open in just a few weeks and we're collecting Beach Towels for the more than 200 Kids in the MT pre-school and after-school programs to use all summer long. We would like to collect thirsty towels (small ones for pre-schoolers and big ones for older kids!) with bold colors and fun designs for the kids to use as they splash through another hot and humid D.C. summer.

Place new Beach Towels in the box outside Becki's office and we'll get them over to MT before swim season starts.

It’s an act of Tzedakah that is sure to make a kid smile. Thank you for your generosity.

Questions? Feel free to contact Roger Nehrer or Rachel Schumacher.
