How to volunteer around the DMV this season

At the beginning of this year, I had one mission: To help more people. While the happenings of 2020 have prevented me from doing it on a level that I envisioned, there are always other ways to do it. Today one of those ways is relaying info to you on how you can also help others. It's the holiday season! What better time to be able to give back than 2020's holiday season?! [If you have the time, energy, and money, of course.]



  • Some schools are setting up gift giving options via Amazon for families who have lost jobs or are unable to give gifts. Here's one!
  • JCC has a week's worth of activities/needs for volunteers
  • The local Angel Tree program with the Salvation Army
  • Sponsor a family or donate gifts to A Wider Circle
  • Help play "Santa" by writing back to kids' letters to Santa
  • So Others Might Eat is good to go with Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, but they need volunteers on the surrounding days. They also have recommendations for other places you can help.


There are more places on Thrillist if you click here! You can also check Eventbrite for more specific ideas and events!

If you know of any other ways to volunteer locally, please let me know so I can add to and keep this list updated!
