ALUMNI, TAKE NOTE: OVER a dozen now signed up.... 

HANDS on DC annually engages well over 2000 volunteers at 30
local DC schools. Volunteers can participate in a variety of tasks,
including painting, gardening, or doing other basic repairs. In past
years, volunteers have painted fences, walls, and murals.

This year, we join a team combining Harvard, Penn, Princeton and
potentially more Ivy clubs. It's a great opportunity to meet alumni
from the different clubs in an ACTION DAY serving the community.

hallways, and stairwells; building planter boxes and planting flowers;
