Washington DC Rotary Club
WHAT : The Rotary Club of Washington DC, along with the Rotaract Club of Washington DC, volunteers with the Salvation Army Grate Patrol on 2 evenings each month. It is always on the 3rd Tuesday and the 3rd Friday of each month. The Grate Patrol is a Salvation Army food van, driven by a Salvation Army employee, that provides meals to clients each evening at about 6 -7 different locations in Washington DC. Rotarians and volunteers will serve meals from the van to the clients at each location. Make it a date night and bring a friend or family member. It will be a night to remember in helping others.
Why should you volunteer?
- It is a rewarding experience in giving to those who don't have much to give.
- You will bond with your friends and family when you make it a date night.
- Bring a teenager and they can get credit with their school for volunteering and it will open their eyes about life.
- You will feel compassion, empathy, and gratitude.
WHO: ALL Volunteers will meet the Grate Patrol Salvation Army Food Van (red and white in color)
WHERE: The corner of 1425 New York Avenue NW, Washington DC 20015 in front of Chase Bank.
