Service Projects: 
There will be two service projects at the Unity Walk this year. The first will be at Washington Hebrew Congregation (WHC) between 12:30 and1:30pm.  Together with WHC and Friendship Place, we will be collecting long underwear to help men, women, and children in need in the DC area. We invite all walkers to donate a pair (or more) of long underwear when they arrive at WHC. Sizes XL and larger are best, although all sizes are welcome.
The second will be apple bagging at Annunication Catholic Church. This project is part of an ongoing gleaning program at The Society of St. Andrews in Virginia.
To serve as a volunteer during the day, please email the organizers at: unitywalk@ifcmw.org
