Only Make Believe's Washington, DC office is located in the heart of Brookland on The Arts Walk...just steps away from the BROOKLAND/CUA Metro Stop (Red Line). With ample free street parking and paid public garages, this is a perfect place to come volunteer! Take a look at some of the volunteer events we already have in store below. We can't wait to see you! 

Saturday, October 5th | 10am-12pm

It's back by popular demand! We are partnering with Tilden House Studio for our fall Sip and Stitch Event. Beginner to Advanced sewing skills are welcome as you create fantastical capes, and tunics for the children we serve in hospitals, care-facilities, and special education centers. Seating is limited for this unique event, so be sure to check your calendars now to reserve your seat (and glass of bubbly). It's not to be missed.

Next up: SEPTEMBER 14th 10AM-11:30aM

Join us on the Second Saturday of every month for a truly creative volunteer opportunity. Allow yourselves to unwind and create hats, tutus, and other kid-friendly giveaways. Everything you create will be used to help children escape into the world of "make believe" during our performances in hospitals, care-facilities, and special education centers.
