“Dear PoPville,

Could you do a thread on volunteering in DC during the pandemic?”

“Dear PoPville,

For my best friends Christmas present I would like to donate new toys and a gift card to a DC family in need. We are both born and raised in DC and find ourselves very blessed during this tumultuous scary time. Do you know of a family or where I can find out how to do this?”

Another reader asks:

“Every year around thanksgiving you normally post about an organization that is donating handmade cards to the Veterans home in DC. I didn’t see the post this year, but thought maybe I’d missed it. I’ve been making cards off/on since Halloween because well, the pandemic and would love to donate them if I can find out where I should send them.”

Ed. Note: Regarding the Armed Forces Retirement Home the organizer tells me: “Base is on lock down so no delivery allowed and there was some back and forth about whether or not the staff could deliver but the risk of cards bringing in germs with unknown data on how long the virus can live on surfaces means.. no card drive.
The pandemic strikes again!!!!! Next year!”
