Support the seniors in our community by assisting with a food distribution at 3 different senior centers in D.C.! Volunteers will help unload food boxes of produce, proteins, and prepared meals at senior centers in need. Now more than ever we need volunteers to assist our operations as more people in our community begin to rely upon local food donation centers. We will meet at the Atlantic Terrace Apartments before moving on to the Southern Hills Community Room and the Atlantic Gardens for a fun, quick, and impactful volunteer event. All three locations are within a mile of each other.
