Shelter & Support: Sukkot Service Project with Casa Ruby

02:00 pm - 10/08/2017

@ Casa Ruby LGBT Community Center

2822 Georgia Ave NW
Washington DC  20001



The Jewish holiday of Sukkot commemorates the forty-year period when the children of Israel wandered the desert, living in temporary dwellings, and searching for a permanent home. Sukkot reminds us of that time when we also had no stable home, no solid roof overhead. Here in our nation’s capital today, 43% of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ – with many citing family rejection as the cause for their homelessness. Join GLOE - GLBTQ Outreach & Engagement at the Edlavitch DCJCC and the Behrend Builders program of Volunteer EDCJCC to help Casa Ruby LGBT Community Center (the only bilingual, multicultural, LGBTQ organization providing life-saving services to the most vulnerable in the DC LGBTQ community) patch, paint, and beautify their space.

All skill levels and backgrounds are welcome!

Space is limited: 15 people max

Cost: $15
The cost helps us subsidize a small portion of the materials used in this project. Thank you for helping us make this project happen for some of the most vulnerable members of our community!

We want everyone who wishes to help, to join us:
If cost is a barrier, please choose the "no barrier" ticket.
If you can sponsor another volunteer, please choose the mensch-size ticket.
(Can't come but want to sponsor another volunteer? Thanks! There's a ticket for that, too.)

ACCESSIBILITY NOTE: There are stairs at the community center.
Please let us know about any other accessibility needs!
