Help Capper Senior Center Residents!

On September 19th, a fire destroyed the 900 5th St. SE Capper Senior Building, home to more than 160 seniors in our community. The Van Ness PTO is partnering with the Capitol Hill Community Foundation and ANC Commissioner Meredith Fascett (6D07) to set up an emergency fund to fundraise for the Capper Seniors. All donations will go directly to the seniors who lost their homes in the fire. You can donate via this link:

We are incredibly fortunate that everyone was able to evacuate the building. The Capper Seniors are now facing a daunting recovery. Your donations will make a difference.

In the days ahead, we will share opportunities for other donations including clothing, meals, volunteer time, and more as soon as that information is available.
