Service is a big part of the Creative Colony values system. In fact, our whole Space is designed to serve Silver Spring's creative professionals seeking a space they could join without commuting far.
For nearly as long as we've been open (which, by the way, we're turning two in a few weeks!), we've been committed to volunteering at Shepherd's Table every third Monday of the month. Shepherd's Table does a wonderful service for the community, and we're happy to offer helping hands to support them. On a typical month, we help the staff set up dinners for the homeless. We fill up trays of breads and desserts, prep pitchers or water, and setup tables. On occasion, we help out in other jobs, like sorting clothing donations.
The regulars who attend are the Creative Colony/SW Creatives team, but we welcome all extra volunteers, and encourage you to partake. The more the merrier!
