This month we want to celebrate Village volunteer, Eliza Fox. Eliza truly exemplifies what it means to be a Village champion. Her work throughout the pandemic ensured that each new resident who walked through our doors received a fluffy new towel, an activity kit, a snack, and many other countless necessities. Let’s get to know Eliza…
“I was born in London — my dad is British, and my mom is a native Washingtonian. I moved to the United States when I was seven years old, and I am now a 7th grader at Westland Middle School.
This year, I had my Bat Mitzvah and chose to work with N Street Village as the service part of my Mitzvah year.
My friends and I had done a project with N Street Village in 6th grade and had visited the N Street location. I was struck by how important its mission is and so when it came time for me to decide how I wanted to give back to my community, I picked N Street Village. I wanted to do something to help women who lived in my city.
Unfortunately, because of COVID 19, I could not volunteer in person. However, I was able to support N Street Village by organizing monthly drives to collect important items needed during the pandemic. For six months, I rallied my friends, family, and community to help with the drive and collected everything from shampoo and cleaning supplies to socks and candy.”
