Volunteer

The Morris Cafritz Center for Community Service (MCCCS) organizes high-impact volunteer projects and events that address the unmet needs in the Washington DC area. For over 25 years MCCCS has enabled volunteering in our community. Our volunteers have the opportunity to enrich the lives of others as well as their own.

Volunteer opportunities are open to all. MCCCS provides support to the DC community in need regardless of age, race, gender, or religion.
