A Wider Circle: A unique, holistic approach to ending poverty

The_Great_8_A_Wider_Circle One way ANDC members are blessing our city is by supporting A Wider Circle, based in Silver Spring, MD. The organization and founder Dr. Mark Bergel were the subject of a WJLA-TV profile.

In fall 2014, several of us gave generously to match a private grant for purchasing new beds for the city’s working poor and those transitioning out of homelessness. Others provided new and gently-used bedsheets, blankets, and pillows. ANDC corporately donated $1,000′ worth of mattress protectors.

Starting in December 2015, we are encouraging donations of The Great Eight items listed to the right. You may bring items to church on Sunday, December 13 and 20 for ANDC to distribute to A Wider Circle.

If you donate directly to A Wider Circle, let them know you belong to All Nations DC Anglican Church to make them aware of our real commitment to helping the poor in Washington, DC, which has the second-highest poverty rate in the nation.
