The event supports Interfaith Works. Almost 72,000 Montgomery County residents are living below the federal poverty line, and 19,757 of these residents are children. With the cost of housing, families are finding it harder and harder to make ends meet. Every day, hundreds of families come to Interfaith Works seeking essential services like clothing, and attend self-sufficiency programs that help them find jobs, participate in life skills classes and more.
Interfaith Works, founded in 1972, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency and a non-sectarian interfaith coalition of more than 165 affiliated congregations of diverse faiths, working together to meet the needs of the poor and homeless in Montgomery County, Md. Our trained, professional staff members work with individuals and families in crisis to empower them with the tools and skills they need to lift themselves from poverty. Our mission is to pursue social justice with an emphasis on identifying and meeting the needs of the poor by leading and engaging Montgomery County’s faith communities in service, education, and advocacy.
