Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets (PRPIS) 8th Annual PRPIS Chuck Brown “Hat, Coat, Boot Blanket, and Food Collection Drive” for Misplaced Seniors from Arthur Capper Senior Public Housing Complex Fire”
Washington, D.C. – Saturday October 20, 2018 – Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets (PRPIS), D.C. Department of Human Services, The Chuck Brown Foundation, Ben’s Chili Bowl Foundation, The B Love Corporation, and its associates will present PRPIS 8th Annual Chuck Brown “Hat, Coat, Boot, Blanket, and Food Collection Drive” for Misplaced Seniors from the Arthur Capper Senior Public Housing Complex fire. This event will be held at The Fairfield Inn & Suites Marriott - 2305 New York Avenue N.E., Washington, D.C. 20002 between 1pm – 6pm. (location subject to change)
This year’s “Hat, Coat, Boot, Blanket and Food Collection Drive” theme is ‘Get to Giving’ in which PRPIS will provide a platform for our community to demonstrate their giving spirit towards the community of the misplaced seniors from the Arthur Capper Senior Public Housing fire.
There will be an onsite designated collection area for receiving donations of hats, coats, boots, blankets, food, and personal hygiene items, etc. (all donations accepted). Donated items given to this drive for the misplaced seniors will be given directly to Miss. Dora Taylor and her staff at the Department of Human Services to be distributed appropriately to those in need. A Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets (PRPIS) ‘Go Fund Me’ page and website link will be created for monetary donations to be given to this project.
By collaborating with city citizens and organizations to assist us with this project, it is our hopes at Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets that we will succeed in providing our misplaced seniors with the resources that will help raise their self esteem and promote a positive transitional period for them back to their comfortable way of living. And as importantly, confirming to them (our misplaced seniors) the level of respect and love that is shared by all concerned.
In addition, Pep Rally for Peace in the Streets will provide live local entertainment of gospel, Motown, R&B, and other music genres to sooth their souls.
The winter months are harsh times for the homeless. PRPIS brings people together to lend support in helping those who are unable to help themselves.
Remember "It Takes a Village"
