Share the Joy of the Season

We are excited to launch our annual Holiday Gift Drive for grandfamlies at Plaza West. Now in it’s third year, there are two new ways you can contribute to a deserving child this holiday season:

  1. We have worked with the grandfamilies to compile an Amazon Wish List that includes gifts specifically requested. Simply select the items you would like to purchase and they will be shipped directly to the Mount Vernon Triangle CID office where they will be sorted, packaged, and delivered to Plaza West in time for its holiday celebration on Thursday, December 15.
  2. For the second year we have also partnered with Generations United to create a cash donations page. These cash donations will be used to purchase gift cards for residents who did not request specific items on the Amazon Wish List.

Either way you give, you will be helping make the holidays of a deserving family a little bit brighter this season. Plaza West is an innovative affordable housing development serving grandparents raising grandkids. The unique development has 50 units for head of households age 50 and older who have legal custody/guardianship of at least one minor child. Plaza West is just one of a handful of such projects across the country and is the only project of its type in Washington, DC.
