Volunteer opportunities this week

Got an email about this week, which is National Interfaith Service Week. One of the programs is helping with the Salvation Army and ML Resources Social Vision's Sherman Ave Feed Program, located at 3335 Sherman Ave NW. From their release:
Social Vision aims to bridge the gap between the West and Islamic World through the development of socially responsible partnerships and philanthropic projects. Social Vision is participating in this event as part of a call for people of all religious affiliations to join together and make a difference in the lives of others...

The Feeding Program serves about 30-40 people for lunch Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Volunteers are needed to assist with food preparation and serving on these days between 11:00am and 2:00pm.
Interested folks can email klakhani@mlresourcesllc.com. Here's their full press release. The Post article has more opportunities as well.

i just wanted to say that i live in columbia heights and i love this blog. it is very informative. often times "local" blogs tend to start with a bang and then just plain fizzle out. i guess the writers become bored or something. i hope that never happens here! i am surprised more residents don't read/post here. i'll spread the word.

keep it up!

Thanks for the great comments about Interfaith Service Week. I hope people will be able to participate in the wonderful events in Columbia Heights to help those in need.

In addition, ML Resources Social Vision, 9/11 Unity Walk, All Dulles Area Muslim Society, and the Islamic Society of North America will be hosting an interfaith Iftar and community service rally this Thursday, Sept. 3 from 7-9 pm at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue.

The event will feature speeches from religious and community leaders and will bring together individuals from diverse backgrounds to explore the potential of service projects.

If you plan to attend, please email meg@911unitywalk.org as space is limited.

Hope to see you there!
