Charles E. Smith Life Communities has volunteer opportunities for everyone, including for people who have hectic schedules but would still like to help out if only for a day.
Consider volunteering on Thanksgiving, Christmas, or other holidays to give staff a chance to spend these occasions with their families. We also need assistance on Jewish holidays, perhaps in escorting residents to and from synagogue services or to a Passover seder.
Many area synagogues organize "Mizvah Day" programs. As a participant in one of these programs, you could spend as little as an hour or two helping residents in a worthwhile way.
If you are interested in exploring volunteer options, please contact the Volunteer Department or call 301.770.8333.
Prospective volunteers can download our Volunteer Packet. This provides application instructions, forms, and essential information.
