Yachad had 22 volunteers join together to repair the headquarters of Strive DC (a nonprofit for employment training and career development for the unemployed). As one volunteer wrote,
“The experience and turnout was exceptional. The people were terrific and I can’t wait for the next project.”
Yachad offers a volunteer day for all individuals on federal holidays. The project was funded in part by Adas Israel and the PCUCC, as the two congregations joined forces for the third year in a row, to sponsor a Yachad project on Veterans Day.
A special thanks to Joel Fischman, Laura Epstein and Lynda Mack, who were the wonderful organizers from Adas Israel and PCUCC.
Also, a special thanks to the sorority sisters from Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority and the students of Lutheran College Washington Semester, and of course, Chris Hart-Wright of Strive DC.
