DC Metro Chapter
The DC Metro Chapter of the Twelve Days of Christmas, Inc., was established in 2003 by
Kimberley Alton-Calhoun, Kimberly Loder-Albritton, Kristina Ennix and Nicole Hyson. These four
dynamic ladies were friends or relatives of the co-founders of the original chapter, Houston, TX.
The inaugural membership in Washington, D.C. totaled 12 women who wanted to carry on the
organization’s mission by giving to less fortunate children and families in their area.
The organization has grown to 45 members since its inception. Fundraising efforts have
increased from $2,000 to over $50,000 from our two annual fundraising parties and corporate
sponsorship, and the outreach to families has expanded from the District of Columbia (DC) to
include the Metro DC area of Maryland and Virginia, and Baltimore, Maryland.
I am both honored and humbled to lead the dynamic Twelve Days Of Christmas, INC DC Metro Chapter! The DC Metro Chapter has served our communities in the Nation’s Capital for 16 years! In these years, we have raised nearly $300,000 to support over 1,000 children during our Back-to-School and Holiday Soirees. Our loyal supporters, guests, and corporate sponsors have enabled us to impact the lives of children and families, and form partnerships with schools and organizations who are like minded in mission and purpose! I am humbled to serve in the capacity as President for an organization that makes a lasting and indelible imprint in the lives of the children we serve. Our children are not only our future, but they are the gateway to greatness and prosperity for generations to come. We must be the blessing for those that are burdened, and spark to those whose light may be dimmed.
Giving back of our time, talent and treasurer under the backdrop of genuine love, friendship and sisterhood, is who the women of the DC Metro Chapter are. Our purpose remains #ForTheKids in all we do. To acknowledge the gifts and blessings that have been given to us, we freely give back to others.
