Actors' Equity members in the DC/Baltimore/Northern Virginia region came together this past holiday season for the first Annual AEA Liaison Committee Dignity Drive in an effort to supply much needed new and packaged underclothing and baby supplies to local area homeless shelters. Liaison Secretary Emily Townley shepherded the event with assistance from committee members Barbara Pinolini, Peter Boyer, Laura Giannarelli, David Elias, Bill Largess, Jenna Henderson, Rana Kay and Ilona Dulaski. Donation boxes were strategically placed at several area theatres and supported by the actors and staff members at Arena Stage, Woolly Mammoth, Signature Theatre, Studio Theatre, Imagination Stage, Ford's Theatre and Everyman Theatre. Over 2,000 items totaling over $1,800.00 were donated, sorted and delivered to N Street Village for Women and the DC Coalition for the Homeless which runs 13 area shelters for homeless families. Next year we hope to double the numbers and continue to make a difference to those folks in our community who continue to struggle.
