Just got this question from a reader, and it's a good one. Please post your suggestions in the comments!
I'm wondering about whether there were organizations in this neighborhood looking for regular volunteers. I moved to Columbia Heights in March of 2011 and now that I’m fully settled, I’d like to get more involved in my neighborhood. Do you know of any organizations in need of regular volunteers?
Off the top of my head I can think of Martha's Table, and 826DC might, but last time I checked they had a huge waitilist. Any other ideas?
