Volunteer Year-Round


Join us for one of our monthly volunteer opportunities. All volunteer programs require pre-registration. We look forward to seeing you!


Behrend Builders
Revitalize local shelters, low-income family homes, and public schools as a group with co-workers, family, and friends, or join an open build. No special skills required and all tools and equipment will be provided.


Blood Drives
Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. One donation can save four lives. Donate blood with the DCJCC in partnership with Inova Blood Donor Services. The DCJCC hosts four annual on-site blood drives throughout the year. Learn about eligibility requirements here. 

Hunger Action
In the District, 1 in 7 households struggles with hunger. Join the DCJCC to combat hunger within our community by preparing meals for local agencies. We work in partnership with DC Central Kitchen and hold programming both at the DCJCC and at DC Central Kitche on a monthly basis.

Handmade for the Homeless
Connect with fellow knitters and crocheters to create warm winter items for those experiencing homelessness in the greater Washington area. All skill levels are welcome! Whether you’re a pro or just learning, Handmade for the Homeless allows volunteers to warm those living on the streets with handmade hats, gloves, and scarves.

Handmade for the Homeless meets once a month at the DCJCC. For more information, visit us on Facebook!
