The District Alliance for Safe Housing, Inc. (DASH) is happy to announce a new partnership with BJ's Wholesale Club in the form of a $2,500 grant through their charitable foundation. The funds will help provide emergency items such as blankets, personal hygiene products, and transportation passes for survivors of domestic and sexual violence living in the DASH Cornerstone safe housing program.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 04, 2014

Since its inception in 2005, BJ's Charitable Foundation has given over 19 million dollars to community based programs and initiatives like DASH that serve people in need. BJ's emphasizes their commitment to meaningful charitable giving, "At BJs, we take pride in actively working to improve the communities our Members live in. Which is why we started the BJs Charitable Foundation."

DASH is excited to join the list of innovative organizations involved in hunger prevention, self-sufficiency, healthcare and education that BJs supports. The $2,500 grant will have a direct impact on the lives of the survivors of domestic violence and their families that live in the DASH safe housing program as they escape the threat of violence. The funds will support residence assistance and welcome baskets with urgent needs such as blankets and sheets, transportation passes and cookware that might otherwise be financially out of reach for survivors and their families.
