Join us at the DCJCC for food and festivies before or after your project!

AT THE J
You don’t have to travel far to have an impact throughout our community.  Choose one of the projects hosted at the DCJCC and your contribution will be felt across the area.

THROW A PARTY
Looking to channel your creativity? Join volunteers to help organize and lead activities to engage and entertain residents of group homes, homeless shelters, and senior centers.  The DCJCC will provide games, crafts, and desserts to help add to the festivities.

VISITS
Escorting a resident to lunch, playing a game of cards, working on an arts & crafts project, or visiting a hospital room, will give you the chance to brighten someone’s day.

MUSICAL PROJECTS
If you like to sing, play the piano or guitar, and want to spread holiday joy share your musical abilities with these projects. 


PAINTING/ BEHREND BUILDERS
Brighten the day of those living in homeless shelters by brightening the walls. 

PREPARE A MEAL 
Do you like to chop, dice, slice, and prepare food? Then this may be the project for you. 

SERVE A MEAL
Put on an apron and spread holiday joy with a meal and a smile. These projects involve serving meals and visiting with clients as well.

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

DELIVER A GIFT, A MEAL, AND HOLIDAY CHEER 
Invite friends or family to get out and about on D25 with a delivery project. Volunteer teams will make several stops to homes to drop off a meal or gifts for families. Sign up as a team. NOTE:  A “Team/Vehicle” must have a minimum of 2 adults required.

LGBT COMMUNITY PROJECT
Join GLOE, which connects GLBT Jews (and our friends) at the DCJCC, as we come together for D25 to serve two great local organizations that have a major impact here in the DC area.

ORGANIZATIONAL SUPPORT
Interested in a little bit of everything? These activities range from distributing gifts to organizing donations.

BLOOD DRIVE
There is no substitute for blood. It can only come from one place; a volunteer blood donor. Join us at the DCJCC for our annual D25 Blood Drive
