Let’s get together this spring and celebrate joy! A wonderful opportunity is here, and it consists of thoughtfulness, creativity, and hope. Please donate your time and participate in a virtual event for Cardz for Kidz!

 

We invite you to join your fellow ASMC Washington Chapter members as we create handmade cards for sick, recovering, or traumatized children, seniors, and families around the world. Cardz for Kidz is a non-profit organization whose mission is to hand deliver cards to those individuals who need of a reminder of hope. The organization started in 2010 with one location but has grown to over 400 locations in over 40 countries, including all 50 U.S. states. Their motto is #TooSmallNoSuchThing.

 

Please join us to create handmade cards for individuals who will appreciate your thoughtful designs and messages. We are looking for as many volunteers as possible and hope you’ll join us in this relaxing yet meaningful community service event!  We encourage you to include your family and friends in this fun event.

 

Please come prepared with paper/construction paper, pens, markers, and any child safe decorations that you would like to use to decorate. As we are holding the event virtually, you will also need to cover the cost of mailing the handmade letters from your location to Cardz for Kidz.

Helping Our Community One Meal At A Time


On September 17, 2019 and January 28, 2020 twelve ASMC Washington Chapter members donated their time and talent to help DC Central Kitchen.  DC Central Kitchen prepares and deliver more than 5,000 meals to partner homeless shelters, rehabilitation clinics, halfway houses, and afterschool programs each day.

The team of volunteers gathered at DC Central Kitchen to help the kitchen staff with various tasks for the morning. Wearing hair and beard nets and aprons, the team was divided into small groups to help the DC Central Kitchen staff in different parts of the kitchen. The volunteers cut vegetables for bolognese sauce, helped prepare the Bolognese sauce, cut various fruits, prepared meals and snack boxes for community centers, and helped DC Central Kitchen with other tasks. At the end of the morning, the team had time to reflect on the impact the organization makes in our community and enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by the kitchen staff at DC Central Kitchen as a gesture of their gratitude!   Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers!
