WHC Collects

Throughout the year, we participate in a number of collection campaigns ranging from food drives to benefit the hungry in the D.C. metro area to blanket collections to help Syrian refugees. Giving back locally and internationally, our annual campaigns are an important part of fulfilling the values of tikkun olam at Washington Hebrew Congregation.

MLK Day of Service


Collecting donations now through Monday, January 21.

Our work for MLK Day of Service starts now as we collect the items that we'll sort and pack as part of our upcoming tikkun olam projects.
