Great Day of Service

Join us for our Great Day of Service held twice a year in the Spring and Fall. 

Spring Great Day of Service Meal Packing

The Spring Great Day of Service provides an opportunity to participate in one project, in one space.  During our Spring 2018 Great Day of Service (GDOS), Foundry and neighboring UMCs--Asbury and Mount Vernon Place, partnered with Rise Against Hunger and packed 20,000 meals for individuals around the world. 

Fall Great Day of Service group

The Fall Great Day of Service deploys participants at numerous sites located around the metropolitan Washington, DC area.  You have the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects--from harvesting fruits and vegetables at an orchard for a local food pantry to assembling furniture and moving a family into their new home.

Save the date!  The 2018 Fall Great Day of Service will be held on Saturday, October 20th.  Look for announcements on the opening of registration, as well as the availability of Foundry shirts for purchase.  Currently we have the following sites confirmed, and will be adding more as the event gets closer:

  • Books to Prisons
  • Capital Area Food Bank
  • Foundry Job Corps
  • Lighthouse DC
  • Martha's Table
