Greater DC Cares is a non-profit that works to recruit volunteers and place them in other non-profits based in DC, Virginia, and Maryland. Recently, I have joined Greater DC Cares in a new initiative to engage volunteers in Columbia Heights, Mount Pleasant, and Petworth. Service work not only betters the neighborhood, but also provides an outlet to meet new people, connecting residents of the area in a more solid community foundation. It is my goal over the next year to do just this in these regions. I am looking for help in recruitment of other volunteers via posting fliers, connecting with community organizations, churches, and schools, and talking to fellow residents by going door to door and handing out information on Greater DC Cares work in the Columbia Heights region. If you are interested in becoming a part of this movement, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, as I can use all the help I can get over the next year! If you would like to see more of what Greater DC Cares does or volunteer with non-profits in the area, you may also contact me, or visit the website at http://www.greaterdccares.org/. Thanks for your help!
