Ascend Greater Washington – Community Service Event with the DC OAPIA

Ascend Greater Washington is assisting The DC Mayor’s Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs for a Health Fair on Saturday, May 18 at the Martin L. King Library, 901 G Street NW, Washington DC (at Gallery Place/Chinatown metro station). The event aims to provide a wide range of health screenings (diabetes, blood pressure, vision, dental, HIV, Hepatitis B, C, and HIV), and other health and human services to Asian and Pacific Islanders who otherwise might not receive them due to language and cultural barriers. It is free and open to the public.

Bilingual volunteers are needed to help non English speakers communicate with service providers. The following languages are needed: Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese.

General helpers are also needed for setting up, cleaning up, ushering, manning registration tables, distributing information, taking photos, serving lunch for volunteers and other tasks. You may sign up to volunteer for the whole day or for any of the following time slots: 8 am- 10 am; 10 am – 12 noon; 12 noon  – 2 pm and 2 pm – 3 pm. Any help is much appreciated.
