So Others Might Eat, better known simply by the acronym S.O.M.E., is an amazing organization that provides food to those who are hungry in the Washington, DC community. In addition to providing meals, they also offer employment training programs, drug treatment and mental health services as well as providing affordable housing to those in need.
Another major initiative of SOME is providing assistance to the elderly. I know all about this because I volunteer with their monthly meal delivery program to seniors. The deliveries are done the third Saturday of eat month and the focus area is the SE quadrant of Washington, DC. They are always looking for volunteers to assist with the deliveries and other programs targeted to seniors. It's such a rewarding experience and I look forward to doing it each month.
Currently, they are in need of donations of wall units and air conditioners to be given to those seniors who are suffers in the heat due to the extreme summer temperatures. To find out more about this project, please click here.
