Need Volunteer Opportunity Recommendations

My employer has given us an allotment of ‘give back days’ to encourage us to volunteer around DC, but I’m having trouble finding the right fit. The problem is, it really only allows me two days out of the year to “give back”, and a lot of the opportunities I’m finding on say, VolunteerMatch require a larger, weekly commitment, which I’m afraid I can’t do. Does anyone know of any organizations around DC that are in need of a day or two of help? I’m fairly open to any kind of work, so anything will do, and I can even pass along the list to my coworkers.

Here are just a few of the places that have one-off volunteer options:

Clagett Farm in MD – It’s field work and you can donate your time/share of produce to the Capital Area of Food Bank:

Food Banks – You can also work in the warehouses at CAFB or So Others May Eat (SOME):

There’s a 9/11 service day:

And for next year, there’s MLK Day of Service.

So Others Might Eat. Argh.

Habitat For Humanity, too:

I think A Wider Circle has one-day opportunities:

Or if you’re feeling really ambitious, maybe your company would let you organize a blood drive:

Good luck!
