Next Monday, December 14 is the deadline to adopt a family -- email [email protected] for details -- for this year’s Holiday Basket Program from the Metro Washington Council’s Community Services Agency. This year’s program is focused on families recently rehoused from homeless shelters, victims of domestic violence and people who do not qualify for unemployment. "The bulk of our Holiday Basket referrals this year are from organizations serving our communities' most vulnerable populations,” said CSA Executive Director Sonte DuCote. CSA’s goal is to get 26 families "adopted", with 11 families so far, “thanks to our tremendously generous unions, allies and friends,” said DuCote. That includes the AFL-CIO, AFGE, OPEIU Local 2, the Electrical Workers, Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, the Northern Virginia Labor Federation, AFT's Impressions Book Club, the DC Chapter of Epicureans and Metro Washington Council President Dyana Forester.
