The Holiday Project of the National Capital Area organizes visits to people in institutions. We give our volunteers an opportunity to contribute to us. We bring the spirit of a holiday to people who otherwise would not have a celebration.

Description:
The Holiday Project of the National Capital Area organizes visits to people residing in nursing homes, hospitals and on other holidays throughout the year. Every Holiday Project visit is preceded by a 20-30 minute training at the facility and ends with a 15-20 minute completion/acknowledgment gathering. During visits, volunteers spend time and talk with residents and patients. We sing holiday songs and distribute cards and gifts. We walk throughout the facility with a goal to visit everyone who wants to be visited.

History:
The Holiday Project of the National Capital Area, Inc. is a licensed locality of The Holiday Project, a national non-profit serving people throughout the United States. The Holiday Project began in 1971, when eight people visited patients at the Laguna Honda Hospital in San Francisco, California. In 1980, The Holiday Project became a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Since it began, Holiday Project volunteers have visited with over a million people confined in institutions all over the country on holidays throughout the year. The Washington Area Chapter began activities in the mid-70s and still continues to serve people in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC. In 2000, activities were expanded to include people in Delaware.
