Shelter Clean Up - Shelter Clean Up

Volunteer Project Description:

New York Avenue Men's Shelter provides emergency shelter every single night of the year. The shelter offers a hot meal, shower, place to stay off the streets, and access to a case manager. Beds are available on a first come, first served basis to some of our most vulnerable neighbors.

Join us on Saturday to help us clean and maintain the inside of the shelter, while also cleaning up the perimeter of the property.

All supplies will be provided; volunteers should bring work gloves, if available, and wear clothing appropriate for the weather. Sign up by yourself or as a group!

New York Avenue Men's Shelter is located at 1355 New York Avenue NE, Washington, DC 20002.5.
