Get Hands On with DC Schools

hansdondc.pngThis Saturday marks the 14th annual Hands On DC Schools event, where thousands of volunteers descend on DC schools, organized into teams by the Hands on DC group. Since 1994, over 26,000 volunteers have worked to make DC Schools a better place. If you want to help, and you know you do, be sure to drop them a note at volunteer at handsondc dot org and let them know.

Rebuilding DC’s schools is more than just setting up accountability structures, it’s also about making the school buildings habitable and comfortable, and Hands On DC is looking to help with that. Get out and help this weekend. The weather’s going to be nice and Spring-like, and you could really lend a hand, I promise.

Major thanks to Frank who pointed this out to us. Remember, if you’ve got news on a DC event, feel free to hit the Suggest a Story button.

    Thanks Tom! Just a quick update:

    If you’re interested in volunteering but not on a team, we’ll send you to a school that needs a few extra hands. Registration begins at 9am, at the “Walk-In Volunteers” table at Jefferson Junior High School (801 7th Street, SW, 20024; L’Enfant Plaza metro). Please e-mail with any questions.

    So if you want to participate, you don’t have to send us an email, just show up at Jefferson. More information can be found here:

    Thanks again Tom, and thanks DC!
