D25 Day of Service


Thank you to the over 650 volunteers who served or prepared meals, sang carols, made beds, cleaned floors, and brought so much happiness and cheer to individuals experiencing homelessness, seniors, folks who are hospitalized, and folks who are homebound. We helped spread cheer, love, and compassion across the DMV!

December 25th Day of Service (D25) is the Edlavitch DCJCC’s largest volunteer event of the year. Join hundreds of volunteers at a social service agency 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.

This year, while the EDCJCC building is undergoing renovation, the Hyatt Regency will be D25’s home base. Several ways to give back will be available on-site at the Hyatt Regency, including our Winter Blood Drive, making instant meal kits, creating cards for emergency personnel working on Christmas Day, and many others. Registration and check-in will also take place at the Hyatt Regency this year.

Many of the projects are family-friendly – please read individual project descriptions carefully for the minimum age to volunteer at each site.
