A Wider Circle’s Ann & Don Brown
Center for Community Service

Learn, Serve, and Celebrate!

Join us at A Wider Circle’s Center for Community Service for a community day extravaganza!

Neighbor to Neighbor Day is a great opportunity for families, groups, and neighbors of all ages to join us for a day of learning opportunities (including a panel discussion featuring WAMU’s Michael King and Morgan Baskin), special volunteer projects, plus carnival games, arts and crafts, delicious food and drink, and more.

Neighbor to Neighbor Day is all about you — our neighbors — engaging with each other and supporting members of our community.

Tickets are $25, or purchase a $75 family ticket for admittance of up to two adults and four children. Proceeds from all tickets purchased will support the work of A Wider Circle, and all donations made at the event (and all June long!) will be matched, dollar for dollar! Gather your friends, family, and colleagues and join A Wider Circle in building community, neighbor to neighbor.

***Kids under 5 get free entry to Neighbor to Neighbor Day! While they do not need a ticket, if you are bringing any children under 5, please email Brooks Reagan at  breagan@awidercircle.org so that we can get an accurate headcount for the event.***


  • Hear from experts in the region in our panel discussion, Poverty, Equity, and Economic Security, moderated by WAMU weekend host Michael King.

  • Gain perspective and understanding of the challenges and difficult choices faced by many of our neighbors through an educational  poverty simulation.

  • Take a tour of A Wider Circle’s Center for Community Service and learn about our programs, and meet members of our Social Justice Committee!

  • Kids and adults alike can express their creativity at our arts and crafts station.

Neighbor to Neighbor Day sponsor levels and benefits
Bonus Sponsor Activities
  1. Furnishing Futures: Furnish a home for a neighbor! Another great opportunity for corporate engagement. Furnishing Futures will enable your team to set up an entire home for a neighbor receiving support from A Wider Circle. Help move in much-needed furniture, set up rooms, and decorate with warm touches. Roll up your sleeves and give a neighbor the ultimate gift — turning a house into a home!

  2. Mattress Giveaway: SOLD OUT! Connect with neighbors as we distribute our most requested item: mattresses! Sponsorship of our Mattress Giveaway facilitates corporate engagement by allowing a team of your employees the chance to greet neighbors receiving items, load their vehicles with beds and additional home furnishings, and connect with local community nonprofits assisting with the event. This a great way to give back to many in our community in just a few hours!

After finishing their day of service, volunteers for both activities will join guests at our Center for a barbecue and festive celebration!

For more information, or to discuss these opportunities further, please contact Brooks Reagan, Development Manager, at breagan@awidercircle.org or 301-608-3504.
