How You Can Help

We urge you to consider making a donation to DC Candlelighters or contributing much-needed items from our wish list. We have no paid staff, therefore, 100% of all donations go straight into servicing DC area families directly, for programs such as you'll find on our Programs and Services page. Your donation(s) are tax deductible, but even better, you will be offering hope to local families enduring the unimaginable.

Here are THREE generous ways we can use your help!

1. Make a monetary donation.
