JWI's D.C. Young Women's Leadership Network is partnering with Moishe House to volunteer for We are Family - an organization that provides Washington's isolated inner-city seniors with free services, advocacy, and companionship.
We will meet at 10:00 a.m. at Kelsey Apartments, which is between Park Road and Monroe Street, 1 1/2 blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro station. There may be some bag assembly required, but mostly we will unload grocery bags/boxes, then do a short orientation on We Are Family, the seniors we're helping, and the history of/challenges in the neighborhood.
Finally, we will break into groups to make deliveries. Feel free to bring your car to help with deliveries, but most will be within easy walking distance. Wear comfortable, casual clothes and good walking shoes. Juice and snacks will be provided.
