When I think about the holiday season, I often reference the copious amounts of food, drink and outstanding company of my family and friends from years past. These are luxuries that I have grown accustomed to over my lifetime and have come to expect on an annual basis. Unfortunately, not everyone has the same fortune that many of us benefit from around the holidays. This fact is evident every time I volunteer to help those in need, especially during this time of year.
Along with several other D.C. United and United for D.C. staff members, we took a few hours out of our day to volunteer at one of the most hospitable places I have ever been, Miriam’s Kitchen.
