  • Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV (1888PressRelease) December 01, 2013 - With the holiday season in full affect, many people are experiencing the urge to give back to those in need. My Girlfriend's House, a nonprofit organization that supports at-risk women and teen girls throughout the year, has decided to continue their mission of empowering by hosting a Holiday Tea Party for 50 women living in homelessness.

    The Holiday Tea Party is an initiative of their ongoing Homeless Outreach program designed to help those living in the streets of DC and Maryland. In true MGH fashion, the mentees of their Girl Talk Mentoring Program, along with a group of women volunteers will travel to the Montgomery Avenue Women's Center to provide food, entertainment and love to the guests of the shelter. The Montgomery Avenue Women's Center is a daytime service program for homeless women living in Montgomery County, MD. Their mission is to empower women to have access to supportive services and lifestyle options that can enhance their safety and well-being.

    My Girlfriend's House will prepare a three course meal and provide games and raffles for the guests to enjoy. "We know that a lot of these women won't have the chance to enjoy the cheerful holiday season like the rest of us." Executive Director of My Girlfriend's House, Veronica Eyenga shared. "Throughout the year we work really hard to provide support to those in need but it's something about the Christmas season that gets us really excited and ready to give back. We just hope that it can put a smile on their faces and let them know there are people that care about them."

    The tea party will take place on Saturday, Dec 7, 2013, from 12 pm - 2pm at the women's center. My Girlfriend's House has sought the help of the community to donate gifts of love so each guest can walk away with her very own Christmas present.
