Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)
The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors is seeking volunteers in the Washington D.C. area for our ongoing Thinking of You notecard project.
About the project: Each month, TAPS sends over 200 hand-written notes to newly bereaved military families. These cards are a very personal way of letting survivors know that we are keeping them in our thoughts and that TAPS stands by to connect them with programs and services to support them in their grief journey.
Volunteers who have lovely handwriting/printing and careful attention to detail are encouraged to volunteer.
Dates and times are flexible according to your availability within TAPS operating hours of Monday - Friday from 8:30am - 5:00pm.
Please click on the button to sign up, and a member of the Volunteer Resources team will connect with you to schedule a time for you to volunteer. Thank you!
