Volunteer Opportunities in Washington DC Area in April 2011

I’m not sure that this is the best for forum for this, but I’m hoping that some community-service minded Washington area Federal employees will join me in volunteering in April. The first is during National Volunteer Week and is with Greater DC Cares, the same organization that President Obama and the First Lady volunteered with on MLK Day. The second is focused on helping to beautify Washington, DC public schools.

To join these events, click on the registration links below and join the “Federal Employees Family and Friends” team.

There is still time to make a commitment to volunteer in April. Celebrate National Volunteer Week by volunteering with other Federal employees, family, and friends in Washington, DC.
