On one of our coldest winter days so far, Farmers & Distillers joined The Tommy Show and the Washington Area Fuel Fund (WAFF) to raise awareness and funds to help people across the DMV keep warm.

Team members, Julie Sharkey and Emily Hough, joined the WAFF Warmth Wagon at the DowntownDC Holiday Market to hand out fresh-pressed apple cider and our hot First Bake Blend Drip Coffee

It was a great day and a great way to help our neighbors and help spread the word of the work that the WAFF does every day across the DMV to help area residents. We were happy to champion such a great cause, and also get the opportunity to once again partner with DC’s fun, charitable duo, and some of DC’s best citizens, radio personalities, Tommy McFly and Kelli Collis, of The Tommy Show

Across the district, one in five people live below the poverty line and are eligible for heating assistance, but there aren’t enough funds to meet the need. A long-standing partnership between Washington Gas and The Salvation Army USA, the Washington Area Fuel Fund provides local area families in need help with heating costs. In 2018 alone, the WAFF helped 8,000 families. Over the past 36 years, WAFF has contributed $29 million dollars to help 300,000 families stay warm during our cold DC area winters.

If you weren’t able to make it to the DowntownDC Holiday Market, there is still time to donate to this great cause online at WAFFHelp.org.
