Econometrica Joins Friendship Walks at the National Mall
On the brisk Saturday morning of November 3, Team Econometrica walked around the National Mall in Washington, DC, to show support for Friendship Place and its mission to end homelessness. The event started on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where participants warmed up with yoga and music from DJ EZ Street. Guest speakers, including Friendship Place CEO Jean-Michel Giraud, gave opening remarks, and one youth told her story of using Friendship Place’s services to find housing after struggling for a long period.
After the inspiring remarks, Team Econometrica joined the throng of orange-shirted participants on a walk toward the U.S. Capitol.
Every month, Econometrica organizes a social impact event to help raise awareness and give back to the community. In June, Econometrica chose Friendship Place to raise funds to celebrate Econometrica’s 20th anniversary. Friendship Place’s mission of ending homelessness and programs to help veterans find housing aligns well with Econometrica’s mission of offering technical assistance and support for housing projects.
Econometrica’s employees donated $275 for Friendship Walks and donated $1,396 in June for its 20th anniversary auction. October was also Housing America month and Econometrica chose to use Friendship Walks to highlight this event.
Friendship Walks ended with donuts and coffee and closing remarks from our Health Director, Dr. Monique Sheppard. It was a great way to spend a Saturday morning and celebrate Econometrica’s 20th anniversary!
