Get Up Give Back – Howard University Cash Giveaway
Free money anyone? Recently, Easterns Automotive Group teamed up with WUSA 9 to sponsor a very segment for Get Up DC. The Get Up Give Back series features Get Up DC’s own Reese Waters going out into the community and finding ways to help out others. This time, Waters decided to head down to Howard University in Washington D.C. with the camera crew to surprise students with a cash giveaway on their very first day of classes. He knew that all of the students would be in the library buying books so that was his first stop. Waters approached several students as they were heading to check out and gifted them each with the necessary funds to cover their purchases.
In total, Waters gave out $1,000 cash to the incredible students at Howard University courtesy of Easterns. Each and every single student was so grateful and appreciative of the money. They all had a sense of relief because those that were selected will now have some extra money to start the new semester. Joel Bassam and the lovely Easterns team wanted to get involved with this cause because they understand the stress around shopping for classes and wanted to make it easier on the students. It is great to help out the community and do great things for those working hard to accomplish their goals!
Easterns Automotive Group and WUSA 9 are always here to help. If you know someone in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area that is worthy of being helped or recognized, please contact at @ReeseWaters on social media. #GetUpDC #GetUpGiveBack
