Bring your furry, four-legged friends to have their free photo taken at our first ever Santa Paws! Join us on Sunday, December 1st from 11am-3pm at our office in Columbia Heights. Simply bring your pet, a toiletry item or article of clothing to donate to Thrive DC, and we’ll take a hi-res, digital photo of your pet with Santa. Additionally, we’ll have doggie treats and snacks for humans.
What is Thrive DC?
Thrive DC works to prevent and end homelessness by providing vulnerable individuals a comprehensive range of services to help stabilize their lives. They provide the last available safety net for people facing economic crisis and housing instability while also providing the first step toward independence for people experiencing extended periods of homelessness.

Here are a few of the things you can bring to donate:
- winter coats
- sleeping bags
- toiletries (toothpaste, small travel sized shampoo, bar soap, etc)
- unused thermal underwear
- unused socks
