Each spring at Hands On DC's annual Work-a-thon, over 2,000 Hands on DC volunteers from across Washington, DC spend one day working in approximately 30 DC public schools on basic improvement projects such as painting, cleaning, landscaping, and special projects like rehabilitating playgrounds and wiring classrooms for Internet access.
