The GNO LoveSac Project
Supports women and children who are living in domestic violence or homeless shelters without basic needs. We provide a sealable canvas bag filled with the care and wellness essentials a woman or child living in a shelter needs including toothbrush, toothpaste, lip balm, soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, lotion, feminine hygiene products etc. Our goal is to help create stability and give families the dignity everyone deserves.

The Books & Backpacks Initiative
Helps promote and enhance youth literacy and support academic achievement in Title I elementary schools. We provide a backpack, school supplies and books to students disproportionately affected by poverty. Each year, GNO-GFWC supports more than 300 children in Washington, DC area communities. Our goal is to help children thrive and succeed through education.
The Holiday Hearts Initiative
Ensures no child in the Washington, DC region wakes up without a gift on Christmas morning. We provide new toys and gifts to the children of economically insecure families. To date, GNO-GFWC has provided thousands of new toys and books as Christmas gifts to area families. Our goal is to help parents make their child’s dream a reality.
The Caring Coats Project
We believe every child deserves his or her own new winter coat. We provide new winter coats, hats and gloves to area children in need. Each year, GNO-GFWC provides hundreds of new coats to children who might otherwise go without. We provide items from size newborn through size 18 for children living in the Washington, DC region.
Eating is a basic necessity for survival. We provide well-balanced hot and cold meals, and groceries to families in need. We also provide information and classes on how to prepare and cook healthy meals with the help of our strategic partners and donors.
