On July 9, 2016 TCCOC hosted a feeding at Franklin Square in downtown Washington, DC to celebrate 10 years of operating in the region.
We were able to provide barbecue chicken, sides, dessert, and drinks to approximately 200 hungry individuals, thanks in large part to your generosity.
We have been blessed over the past 10 years to have the continued support of local businesses and individuals in our fight to end homelessness and hunger in the Metro DC area and look forward to many more years of partnership.
We would like to thank everyone that donated and volunteered to make our 2016 Father’s Day Senior pancake breakfast on June 18th a success.
We were able to provide breakfast for more than 40 seniors from Midlothian nursing homes, and raised $1,200 which will be used to provide clean water wells in Africa.
We would like to give a special thanks to Margaret Hall for spearheading fundraising in the Midlothian area, and to the employees at ANSER, Inc for their continued support of TCCOC.
We would also like to give a shout-out to Applebee’s, who hosted the breakfast.
Our Executive Director Larry Hill was privileged to be able to join Rev. Ellis downtown on Saturday morning to distribute food as part of The Bread Ministry. Here are a few pictures.
On Saturday afternoon, TCCOC and the DC Center for Therapeutic Recreation (TR Center) were joined by Santa and Mrs. Claus to distribute presents to some very happy children. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, our 2014 Angel Tree program was able to provide gifts for more than 100 local children.
In addition to providing Angel Tree gifts for the children, TCCOC was also able to distribute gifts to 24 seniors at the Upper Marlboro Senior Center this week
We would like to thank everyone at Analytic Services and the Homeland Security Studies and Analysis Institute (HSSAI) team who generously provided gifts, helped wrap gifts, and worked to keep us organized. Analytic Services and HSSAI have been TCCOC Angel Tree partners from the beginning and can always be counted on to help make the holidays happy for area children in need.
We would also like to thank Persephone Jones for donating Operation Samaritan Christmas Child Purses which were distributed to children who were not included in the Angel Tree program.
Finally, we would like to extend special thanks to two special donors, one from HSSAI and one from Analytic Services, without whom this event would not have been nearly as successful.
On December 13th TCCOC was excited to head downtown to Franklin Square to provide food and fellowship to people in need. We set up around 8am and by 930 we had served well over 100 individuals. The menu included chili, fried chicken, cornbread, ham and cheese sandwiches, donuts, coffee and tea, and snack bags. We would like to thank all of the volunteers who came out and helped make this event a success.
