Bundle up, put on your walking shoes and head outdoors.  This project provides warmth to the chronically homeless.  Join other volunteers and pass out supplies to those living on the DC streets.

Brighten the day of those living in homeless shelters by brightening the walls. 

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 range from distributing gifts to organizing donations.

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.

Gather a group of friends or family and work on a project together- ideal for groups of 3-6 people.  Projects include serving meals, throwing parties and home visits.
