DECEMBER 25TH DAY OF SERVICE (D25)
December 25th Day of Service (D25) is the Edlavitch DCJCC’s largest volunteer event of the year. Every year, hundreds of people volunteer at a social service agencies in the metro-DC area to prepare and serve meals, sing carols, visit home-bound seniors, throw holiday parties, play bingo, and deliver holiday cheer to those in need.
To best serve both our community of volunteers and the social service agencies we partner with, we have created an array of opportunities for you to engage in D25 this year ranging from in-person to making deliveries and fully-virtual volunteering.
This year’s D25 will be celebrated throughout the week of December 20-25.
Individuals of all abilities are welcome to join us for any of the below options. For more information about accessibility, including to request ASL translation, please contact Joy Stein at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 7 days prior to the event.
