Ward 4 Mutual aid

Ward 4 Mutual Aid is a group of Washington, DC neighbors helping neighbors.

Everyone deserves Support

We provide food, diapers, and supplies to neighbors in Ward 4 — no questions asked, no strings attached.

We are only open one Saturday per month!

On the following dates, please find us at Brightwood Park United Methodist Church at 744 Jefferson St NW. We will offer gift cards, diapers, and other items as available to the first 100 families in Ward 4:

  • Sat January 20 – 10 am
  • Sat February 17 — 10am
  • Sat March 16 — 10am

We will also offer a limited number of home deliveries on these same Saturdays. Home deliveries include a fresh produce box, chicken and diapers (if requested).  If you physically cannot make it to the church on a Saturday, please call or text the Ward 4 Mutual Aid Hotline 202-681-3098 to sign up for delivery.

No registration or other requirements.

Do you need additional food? You can now get food from Bread for the City by picking it up at 1525 7th St NW. Food bags are available Monday-Thursday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, and 1:00pm to 3:00pm. The number of bags you can receive is based on the size of your family. Bring DC ID or proof of residency. Learn more at breadforthecity.org/food.

Do you need pet food? Visit the pet pantry at humanerescuealliance.org/petpantry.

Volunteer

We are 100% volunteer-run — and new volunteers are warmly welcome! If you can field phone calls, manage and pack supplies, make deliveries, or enhance relationships in the community, we want you to be part of Ward 4 Mutual Aid.

Contribute supplies

We regularly need supplies including diapers, personal hygiene kits, and more. We have limited space and can no longer accept children’s clothing and other household items.

Donate

We help anyone, no questions asked. To make that possible we depend on donations from neighbors like you. Donate today to support this work. In particular, monthly donations – no matter their size — help us resource our work predictably and are especially meaningful.
