Circle of Hope: Bowling & Valentines

Friday - February. 13, 2015

On Friday, February 13th, Carpenter’s Circle of Hope is getting together for a bowling party to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Circle of Hope is a giving circle where members commit to an annual contribution of $250 and have the unique opportunity to engage in service days and volunteer activities with their families and children. Families will be bringing valentines and cookies to the party to be given to residents at the shelter on Valentine’s Day.


Circle of Hope is dedicated to putting an end to homelessness in Northern Virginia and giving homeless families the chance to celebrate holidays even during their times of crisis.
