Miriam’s Kitchen Gets Healthy Donation

Ameriprise Financial's Thomas Block presents the check

I really enjoyed my volunteering experience at Miriam’s Kitchen so you can imagine my excitement when I saw they were getting a big donation this week.

Ameriprise Financial presented the non profit that provides healthy meals for more than 4,000 homeless people with a $7,000 check.

Miriam’s Kitchen’s Executive Director, Scott Schenkelberg says “Nearly 100 percent of Miriam’s Kitchen’s funding comes through private donations. We are particularly grateful for Ameriprise Financial’s generous support of our work serving homeless men and women in the District of Columbia.”

Founded in 1983, Miriam’s Kitchen provides free, healthy meals and high-quality support services to thousands of homeless men and women each year through four core programs: Meals, Case Management, Miriam’s Studio, and Miriam’s Cafe.

Shave for the Brave Approaching

On Wednesday September 21st where will you be? Can I convince you to join me and 46 brave moms at Union Station. These women will shave their heads in honor of their beautiful children battling cancer. It’s the 2nd Annual 46 Mommas Shave for the Brave and we want all the support we can get!

Celebrity shavers will be on hand to help the mommas out. They include media pals Arch Campbell, Alison Starling, Andrea Roane, Ed Henry, Tommy McFly, Natasha Barrett , Mary Amons and Flounder to name a few! Please come out and help cheer these wonderful women on. PR at Partners from Chevy Chase is bringing their talented team and photographer Tim Coburn will be doing before and after shots.

Why 46? That’s how many mothers are told each day that “your child has cancer.” The goal this year is to raise $1 Million dollars for St. Baldrick’s. We hope to see you at Union Station Sept. 21st!

46 Mommas Shave for the Brave

September 21st 5-9PM. Proceeds go to St. Baldrick’s Foundation to aid in childhood cancer research. For more information, visit ‘Shave for the Brave’, 46mommas.com
