Wrapping up our project
4.10.2021

Woks for Washington will be officially ending our year-long project on June 30, 2021.

Wednesday, April 14, 2021 will be the last day to contribute via GoFundMe.

We are still accepting checks mailed to Players Philanthropy Fund, our fiscal sponsor, through the end of May! See below for a description of the check details and address:

  • Check Made Out To: Woks for Washington c/o Players Philanthropy Fund
  • Check Memo Line: Donation for Woks for Washington
  • Mailing Address:
    • Attention: Amy Fox at Players Philanthropy Fund
    • 1122 Kenilworth Drive #201
    • Towson, MD 21204

Although it was a hard decision to make, given the progress we’ve made with our project, and the progress that the DMV area has made with fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to officially end our project at the 1-year mark.

Together, we will have helped put more than $30,000 back into our DMV area Asian American restaurant businesses, and will have donated more than 3,000 meals to medical workers and homeless shelters by the end of our project.

We wanted to extend a huge thank you to our donors for supporting us, our restaurants, and our meal recipients along this journey! The generosity and care we’ve seen this past year speaks volumes about the resiliency of the DMV area as a whole, and our Asian American community, as we battle the COVID-19 pandemic and the discrimination we are facing. Your support has been tremendous, and we hope you will continue to follow us on the rest of our journey.

Woks for Washington will continue to financially support our restaurant partners and deliver meals to our meal recipients through June 2021. Donations left unused by the end of our project will be divided evenly as grants to our restaurant partners.

If anyone or any organization would like to get in touch with our partners to support them outside of Woks for Washington’s project, please contact us!


Moving Forward Into 2021
11.07.2020

We’ve been so blessed to receive the outpouring of support we’ve gotten since we launched in July. Your support and generosity has allowed us to dream so much bigger.

We have decided to set a goal of delivering 2,000+ meals by summer 2021!

All meals are delivered to people in need of nutritious meals and our medical staff, who have sacrificed so much for the health of our community.

Help us reach our goal by volunteering to help make meal deliveries!
