FOOD/GIFTS DELIVERY AND VISITS – CAR WITH [AT LEAST] TWO ADULTS REQUIRED
Get out and about on December 25th, invite friends or family, consider a food delivery project. Volunteer teams will make several stops to homes to drop off a light breakfast, a Christmas meal or gifts for families. Sign up as a team. NOTE: A “Team/Car” must have a minimum of 2 adults
Bundle up, put on your walking shoes and head outdoors. This project helps provide warmth to the chronically homeless. Join other volunteers and pass out supplies to folks living on DC streets.
Help paint Mary’s Center in Silver Spring and brighten their day by brightening the walls.
PREPARE A MEAL
Chopping, dicing, slicing, assembling… if these words resonate with you, the food preparation projects may be just what you seek.
If you’re interested in a little bit of everything, this may be the project for you. Activities will range from distributing gifts to organizing donations.
LGBT COMMUNITY PROJECT
Join GLOE, which connects LGBT Jews (and our friends) at the DCJCC, as we come together to serve two great local organizations – HIPS and Metro TeenAIDS – that have a major impact here in DC.
SMALL GROUP PROJECTS
Gather a group of friends or family and work on a project together. These projects are ideal for groups of 3-6 people. Projects include serving meals, throwing parties and visiting.
SERVE A MEAL
Put on a hairnet and an apron and help spread joy with a meal and a smile. These projects involve serving meals and for some, visiting with the clients as well.
