DCJCC Jewish Volunteers D25
The DC Jewish Community Center organizes a 1000-plus person volunteer effort every year at Christmas to reach out to the city's neediest citizens, raising their spirits and helping them enjoy their holiday. It is the largest interfaith event in the Washington DC area. Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Baha'i's serve together in homeless shelters, nursing homes, food banks, and hospitals.
I have been covering it (pro-bono) for about 15 years. It's a blessing all around.
The DCJCC site for the effort is: http://www.washingtondcjcc.org/volunteer/events/d25.php
