Sasha Bruce Youthwork: Notes of Encouragement
Oct 19 – Dec 31 all-day

Sasha Bruce Youthwork is one of the largest and most experienced providers of services to youth in Washington, DC. Their mission is to improve the lives of runaway, homeless, abused, and neglected at-risk youth and their families. They achieve this by providing shelter, counseling, life skills training and positive youth development activities to approximately 1,500 youth and 5,000 family members each year.

Covid19 has exacerbated the challenges of young people experiencing homelessness; opportunities for work and meaningful ways to occupy time have dried up and while many of us have our families to turn to for love and support in these difficult times, these young people unfortunately do not so we need your help to send them some love!

Sign up to write notes of encouragment for both the young clients of Sasha Bruce as well as the staff who work on the frontlines every day! Let them know that they are seen, valued, remembered, and loved. Remind them that they are brave, resilient, and strong. Help make them feel special and put a smile on their faces! Notes will be hung up on the walls of Sasha Bruce’s housing facilities and can be in the form of poems, drawings, letters, etc. They can be any size.

JFamily Challah Train
Nov 2 – Nov 30 all-day

Choo Choo! All aboard the challah train!

Join the JFamily team in connecting neighbors together with challah. A JFamily team member will start the train by dropping off a challah and a train bag to the first conductors home before Shabbat. The next week you pay it forward as the conductor by bringing challah to another neighbor, and then they become the conductor to pass it forward to the next neighbor. Everything you need to know about what to do, including challah recipes and places to buy challah will be in the train bag.

Everything But The Turkey 2020 Edition
Nov 22 @ 10:00 am – Nov 27 @ 5:00 pm


A signature program of the Edlavitch DCJCC since 1996, Everything But The Turkey (EBTT) brings together hundreds of volunteers to chop, mix, grate, and prepare over 13,000 servings of festive Thanksgiving food for people experiencing hunger and homelessness in the DC area. The presenting sponsor of Everything But the Turkey is The Annette M. and Theodore N. Lerner Family Foundation.

Due to the pandemic, we are adapting the program since we are unable to come together in large groups. We will gather both virtually and in person (with all safety protocols in place) to fight hunger and benefit our longtime partner DC Central Kitchen; learn about food justice; and commit ourselves to creating more equity in our community throughout the week of November 22-27, 2020.

Click on the red “tickets” button and then scroll down to “EBTT 2020 Registration Options” to check out the different ways you can get involved and find the ones that best fit your circumstances surrounding the pandemic. We hope you will join us for more than one!
