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.
