D25 Day of Service

DECEMBER 24TH DAY OF SERVICE (D25)

D25 is the Edlavitch DCJCC’s largest volunteer event of the year. Every year, we gather hundreds of people to volunteer at dozens of our social service agency partners in the metro-DC area. This year’s volunteer event will provide a hybrid array of at-home and in-person volunteer opportunities. Projects range from throwing holiday parties, serving meals, and making deliveries, to cooking and baking in your home.

THIS YEAR’S DAY OF SERVICE WILL OCCUR ON FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2021 (since Christmas Day falls on the Jewish Sabbath)

Individuals of all abilities are welcome.

Questions? Email Mira at mirasmith@edcjcc.org.
