Holiday Party and Great CJ Bake Off
This year’s Cabin John Holiday Party was held on Sunday, December 11 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at the Clara Barton Community Center and was co-sponsored by CJCA and the Clara Barton Community Center.
**NEW THIS YEAR** The Great CJ Bake Off
Categories included Cakes, Cookies/Bars, and Breads. Judging was based on flavor, your personal story around your “bake,” and innovation.
Holiday Giving Tree 2022
2022 was the 13th year of Cabin Johnners generously providing resources and love-in-action to the 200 families in SOME’s transitional housing. 2021 was the best year yet, with over 100 CJ families donating a whopping $9,500, so we’ve got a challenge this year to see if we can break $10,000.
So Others Might Eat (SOME) is a local, DC-based nonprofit that fights poverty and homelessness by providing housing, healthcare, training, and social services, and this joint effort by the communities of Brookmont, Glen Echo, and Cabin John has become the largest source of holiday-season support, empowering parents to provide gifts under the tree for their children on Christmas morning and basic necessities for themselves.
Our tradition of hanging “gifting ornaments” is back – – they are up on the tree outside of the Clara Barton community center.
— About the Annual Holiday Party —
