Women Giving Back is a great place to volunteer! Directions are clear and easy to follow, service opportunities are readily available in a variety of forms, and you can see what an impact this organization has on the people who come to shop. My son also worked with them for his Eagle Project, and they were wonderful to work with!

My company organized a volunteer event though our woman’s action committee. We helped sort clothes and get thing staged for the weekend shop opening. The shop and the volunteer work is very well organized. It is obvious that the full time volunteers have their clients’ interest at heart and do their best to make sure their needs are well served.

Women Giving Back changes not only the women and families we serve...this Non-Profit is changing the community, the generous people who donate and also the volunteers and their families. Being a part of Women Giving Back and knowing the effect we are having on the World, is an amazing feeling. Keep it Up Ladies!

I have been involved as a volunteer for over 10 years. We provide clothing and accessories to women and children free of charge. The ability to help these women take care of this basic necessity is easy yet so rewarding. They are grateful and empowered to continue their journey of getting back to a normal life. We work with the Youth For Tomorrow, Wounded Warriors, local mental health independent living facilities, we aid disaster victims, fire victims, anyone in need. The volunteers are fantastic and generous with their time and their compassion. Truly a great organization to work with and to be able to help those in a time of need. I have served on the board of WGB, and am currently the President of the Board of Directors.

Women Giving Back is a great place to volunteer! It is all volunteer based, some that are more experienced and have been with the program. They welcome new volunteers as well and you don't have to have a specific schedule. Working in the store is very rewarding because you can watch over small children or help other women shop, and find something that they like!

My experience with Women Giving Back has been very fulfilling. First of all, I really love the whole philosophy that Women Giving Back has of taking all of the generous donations given to them and then "giving", yes, giving them to women and children that need them...not charging them anything. So many organizations that we are familiar with take our donations and then turn around and sell them rather than give them to the clients that need them. I cannot tell you have rewarding it is to spend time with a client and connect with them to help them make the most of their time at Women Giving Back and to see how happy they are when we find an outfit they love,a handbag they adore or the perfect pair of shoes. I always leave my volunteer time feeling hopeful for the client and their future but also grateful to have had the opportunity to help them.

This is the best non profit in the DMV! WGB is a wonderful organization that is well managed and very resourceful. The WGB store offers clothing, including shoes, for needy women and children in the area. WGB also donates additional clothing, including baby clothes, to local partner charities in DC and throughout Northern VA. This is a fun place to volunteer by yourself or with a group. It is also a great place to donate new or gently used clothing (and get a receipt for your taxes). Many of the clients who shop at WGB are fleeing domestic violence situations and are trying to re-enter the work force to earn a living wage. I have volunteered for over two years and I am amazed by how many families have been helped by this organization. WGB continues to have a positive impact in the comminty.
