Celebrate Capitol Hill!
Celebrate Capitol Hill is a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to improve and preserve the quality of life on Capitol Hill by assisting, delivering and celebrating economic development, tourism and the historic nature of Capitol Hill.
What we do:
Our mission is to improve and preserve the quality of life on Capitol Hill by assisting, delivering and celebrating economic development, tourism and the historic nature of Capitol Hill.
We take that mission to support the quality of life on Capitol Hill seriously and are proud to be a conduit of support to Capitol Hill residents and businesses facing devastating circumstances.
After a neighbor was brutally mugged, Celebrate stepped in as a central point for the collection of donations to the family to help them meet medical and living expenses. Significant and much-needed funding was raised from hundreds of neighbor families, businesses and individuals. More recently, when one of our neighbors in Hill East was victimized by a home invasion, Celebrate collected funds for that family to settle into a new Capitol Hill home. We also assisted in collecting funds to help a staff member of one of the Hill’s core organizations when her husband was killed.
In tandem with Celebrate’s work with victims of crime in the neighborhood, we helped organize two Ward 6 Safety Fairs in Folger Park. These fairs featured District and neighborhood agencies sharing anti-crime tips and guidance to neighbors. The fairs were family-oriented, so young children and families could learn and have fun at the same time.
Celebrate also has helped local businesses and workers. When the Tune Inn experienced a fire in 2011, Celebrate coordinated fund collection efforts, this time to help employees make up for lost wages. Over $22,000 was raised.
