DC MD VA Real Estate Investors and Agents Blanket Drive For Homeless Youth!

We are so excited the success of DMV REIA and it's members! The amount of information that is going to be shared with you is overwhelming. We have set funding, training, construction, rehab, inspection and property management partnerships to ensure that you receive priority services.

DMV REIA takes our motto "Where Investors work together for the success of us ALL!" to heart.

It is now the time of year where we all come together not just for the success of ourselves but for the benefit of everyone.

We have adopted the Covenant House. Every year, children and youth living in the District of Columbia and surrounding areas face challenges no young person should have to endure. They are homeless, living in poverty, lacking adequate healthcare and victims of violence.

Covenant House Washington was established in May 1995 to address widespread problems of homelessness and poverty among teenagers and young adults. With an open intake philosophy, CHW readily embraces those youth who take the first step to change their lives. No youth in crisis is ever turned away.

Hypothermia season is the time of year when the temperature is likely to drop below freezing levels. Hypothermia is a life-threatening condition occurring when a person's body temperature goes below 95 degrees due to exposure to cold and wet conditions. Hypothermia season last until March 31st. Every year the Covenant House host a Blanket Drive. Their goal this year is to collect 400 blanket.

When we heard about the lack of support for homeless youth, we knew our members would help. DMV REIA is going to have a Blanket Drive at the November 7th meeting. We will be collecting new and gently used blankets. You can support this effort by bringing a blanket, simply spreading the word about this effort or reposting this to your facebook page.

As usual, we appreciate you and all of your support. Please forward this message to your contacts so that we can help fight hypothermia for our area homeless youth.
