This summer, Be The Love had a blast serving all over the DC Metro Area! We started our efforts at our School Beautification Day at Hayfield Elementary School in Alexandria, Virginia. We had 88 volunteers gather together to help the school clean up its grounds, and also spent some time crafting cards and backpacks for homeless children in DC!

From there, we transitioned over to the DC General Shelter in Southeast to host a Back to School Superhero Party! We, along with Captain America, Thor, Batwoman, and Miss Howard University, had a great time partying with nearly 100 homeless parents and children in the Shelter, and got them pumped for a great school year ahead!

And this fall, our super service efforts continue throughout the DC Metro Area! We have plenty of great ways for you to get involved. If you’re looking for a regular opportunity, why not check out our Jesus is Here Life Group? This group of dedicated volunteers is looking to spread love all over DC every Saturday Morning. Check out their Facebook page for details!
But if that doesn’t work for you, how about checking out our Turkey Bowl? On November 8, 2014, we’re hosting a large flag football tournament for the children of the DC General Shelter. We’ll have food, drinks, and games going all day, and could use your help in any way you can bring it! Click here for more details.
Finally, if you’re interested in reaching your community in other ways, we want to hear from you! Be The Love is looking to significantly expand its efforts in 2015, and want to know how you think we should do so. If you have an idea for a new community outreach, or an already existing one we should partner with, let us know about it here!
