FOOD/GIFTS DELIVERY AND VISITS
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/Vehicle” must have a minimum of 2 adults required.

GREAT OUTDOORS
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.


PAINTING 
Brighten the day of those living in homeless shelters 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.


ORGANIZATIONAL SUPPORT
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.

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- ideal for groups of 3-6 people.  Projects include serving meals, throwing parties and home visits. 


SERVE A MEAL 
Throw on an apron and help spread joy with a meal and a smile.  These projects involve meal service and  the oppertunity to visit with the clients as well.
