The Community Services Agency helped kick off the DC One Fund Fall 2017 drive at the DC Department of Human Services last Wednesday. CSA "is the only Washington area labor non-profit helping union members during times of hardship, as well as helping to close the gap of economic disparity by giving low income District residents training to prepare for construction apprenticeships," Assistant Executive Director Sonte DuCote told attendees. The DC One Fund is a United Way National Capital Area initiative that provides the opportunity for District government workers to give to local non-profits like CSA. Last year, the DC One Fund collected $1 million to support local non-profits working to provide vital services to District residents, and has set this year’s goal at $1.2 million. District Government workers may designate contributions to the CSA using DC One Fund #8253. Click here to give online.
