Who: We will be working with SOME (So Others May Eat) a community-based organization that provides care to the homeless and extremely poor citizens in the District of Columbia. SOME helps to provide food, clothing, and health care to those they serve. In addition, SOME offers services such as counseling, job training, and addiction treatment to help combat homelessness.
What: Our volunteer project will include landscaping, interior painting, or other indoor maintenance at one of their residential properties. Expect to get your hands and clothes dirty by the end of the day!
When: Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers should arrive at 8:45 a.m. We will work until 1 p.m. and then break for lunch provided by the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
Where: Jordan House, 1509 North Capitol NE, DC 20002.
What to bring: Volunteers should bring work gloves, and are free to bring a water bottle, sunscreen, hat, and rain gear (depending on weather). SOME will supply all the tools we will need to work. Close-toed shoes are advised because you may be working with sharp tools. Volunteers will get dirty and should be prepared for warm, cold, or wet weather.
Additional details: Please note that you are welcome to bring your family and/or a guest to this volunteer event. Children are also welcome with a parent or guardian. The property is located in a residential area, so parking should not be an issue. And, the site is just a 10 minute walk from the Metro. Lunch will be provided by the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
