The children of Benning Terrace got an early start to their holiday cheer.

Arts and crafts, cookie decorating, face painting, and more were activities at the Care and Share event at Benning Terrace on December 6. Children and their parents enjoyed the various activities and then each child received a gift and meal.

The second annual Care and Share event is hosted by the D.C. Building Industry Association, which builds leaders, community, and the economy in D.C. through programs, networking, and education for those in the building industry. DCBIA raised $10,000 for the event through its membership.

DCBIA has worked with the Benning Terrace community over the past two summers to update and improve the community center and the surrounding landscaping. The work was part of a multi-year joint effort to build a thriving sports, recreation, and activity space for Benning Terrace residents of all ages – from young people to seniors.
