Hi! We’re @lala_ivana and @kimchiha, Co-Founders of @meandyou.city, a startup 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in the DMV. Our story began three years ago on Valentine’s day, when neither of us had any plans. We figured, why not spend the day giving out care packages and a little bit of love to the homeless, people who actually needed it? Today, we work to make a difference in the lives of kids and families in need and those without a home on our streets, in our communities and around our city. We strive to make a direct impact on someone’s life, even if it’s only for a day. #meandyoudmv

@meandyou.city partners with schools in the D.C. metro region to provide students with the necessary items for a well-rounded life. Most of the students come from low-income families, some are homeless and live in temporary housing. We work with teachers and administrative staff at the schools to determine need and provide support. We’ve provided school supplies, backpacks, clothes, school uniforms, and toiletries for their families to take home. #meandyoudmv

One of @meandyou.city’s programs focuses on providing kids with greater access to experiences in the arts, sports, and other realms. For many of the families we help, taking their kids to these events are beyond their financial means or they simply don’t have the time. Last month, we took students from @jatrojans to a @washwizards game. Students got free t-shirts and were able to be on the floor to greet players as they came onto the court! It was a super exciting experience. #meandyoudmv #washwizards

When @meandyou.city first started, we wanted to have a positive effect on someone else’s life even if it was only for one day. Maybe we can’t change their entire life or provide them with a home, but we hope that by going out onto the streets and providing care packages, a home-cooked meal, and some conversation - that will be something of worth. #meandyoudmv #homeless #dchomeless
