Work for Sweet Charity [Internship]

14 Dec
Sweet Charity has been rated as one of Washington’s Top 100 Events and showcases over sixty award winning chefs hosting sweet and savory tasting stations, food demonstrations, a silent auction, and a chocolate fashion show! Proceeds from Sweet Charity ticket sales help The Heart of America Foundation provide thousands of books for children living in poverty in the DC metropolitan area.

At The Heart of America Foundation (a national nonprofit), we uniquely combine volunteerism and literacy to provide children in need with the tools to read, succeed and make a difference. We put books into the hands of children in need while transforming school libraries in under-served communities into vital and vibrant centers of learning that become the heart of a school.
