  • Thanks to the Julius West families who made our Kids Helping Kids Food Drive a success! To date, we have collected over 1000 items of non-perishable food for donation to food insecure families in our community. The Food Drive concludes on October 27.

Many opportunities for Service Learning are available in November! 

  • The city of Takoma Park is looking for volunteers to help with “Keep Takoma Park Clean and Green Day” on November 11. Volunteers will help clean up a one-mile section of New Hampshire Avenue.
  • On November 12, the neighborhood of Olney Mill is looking for volunteers to help clean up a local park.
  • The annual Turkey Chase Run at the YMCA Bethesda-Chevy Chase needs volunteers to help out before and during the race, an event that benefits families in need. The race will be held on November 23.
