    Thursday Network has partnered with The Black Swan Academy and DC Action for Children to launch a virtual student arts competition to help middle and high school students channel their creativity during the COVID-19 school closures.  

    Despite the closure of schools, students are continuing to create, dream, and express their ideas through their own unique talents and abilities. We’re inviting students from across the district  to enter our #BetheCount Contest and inspire youth and their families to complete the census. It’s a chance to be involved in a movement that only happens once every 10 years. The census is a once-in-a-decade opportunity for DC to secure resources and representation for their families. Data is used to decide where federal funds will be allocated, redraw legislative boundaries, and more.

    Click here to learn more about our Census Art Contest. We are super excited to see all of your art! A panel of accomplished artists will select a middle and high school first prize winner to receive a $200 gift card each. Middle and high school second place winners will receive a gift card of $100 each. Middle and high school third place winners will receive a gift card of $50 each. We will also have honorable mentions. Submit your entry by May 1st. Winners will be announced May, 15, 2020.

    For questions or concerns email civic@thursdaynetwork.org

    Thursday Network is requesting help from its members and community partners to  support families who are served through our monthly food pantry(i.e., older adults 65 and over and single parent households) during the COVID19 pandemic.  To reduce the spread of the virus we will utilize a grocery delivery service( e.g., Peapod, Instacart) indefinitely to serve our families starting April 2020.  To ensure our service to families is not interrupted during this critical time consider sponsoring a family.

    Learn more about sponsoring a family:

    Sponsor a family of four for $25.00 which includes a two  week supply of the following:

    • Tuna

    • Condiments

    • Peanut Butter & Jelly

    • Oatmeal

    • Fresh fruit

    • Bread

    Resources will be delivered to families  via a grocery delivery service once a month. 

    How to Donate:Individuals can make a donation of $25.00 to the food pantry via the  Thursday Network website

    Organizations who wish to support our efforts should contact Maggie Butler at csprograms@thursdaynetwork.org to coordinate group sponsorship efforts.
