Volunteer as a Group: Event Sponsorship

Volunteer Services works with community partners to provide opportunities for patients and their families to socialize in the atrium. We work with a wide range of community partners, including local businesses, religious groups and organizations. Please note all participants must be 18 or older. Community partners sponsor and volunteer at events, such as arts and crafts activities, karaoke days, video game nights, and movie showings that put a smile on the face of someone who may not have smiled in a while.

Atrium events

Activities typically last two hours and performances last 30 to 45 minutes. A complete list of event guidelines is available. The best days and times to host atrium events are:

  • Weekdays (Monday through Thursday), 10 am – 3 pm or after 6 pm
  • Weekends, 1 – 4 pm 

To learn how your group can sponsor an atrium event, contact Volunteer Services at 202-476-2062.
