ASMC Virtual Community Service Event

Thursday, September 24, 2020

12PM – 2PM via Microsoft Teams Meeting

 

 

Let’s get together and make history! Please donate your time and participate in a virtual Transcribe-a-Thon for the Smithsonian museums!

 

We invite you to join your fellow ASMC Washington Chapter members as we transcribe digitized collections from the Smithsonian museums. Explore and enhance historical collections from around the Smithsonian by transcribing historical documents. Started in 2013, the Transcription Center is a freely accessible website connecting volunteers across the world with digitized Smithsonian collections that need to be or already have been transcribed. Volunteers will look at a scanned image usually containing a handwritten note and type it into a text box without any changes and it is a great way to learn about history in detail! With the help of volunteers like you, the Smithsonian Institution will be able to display historically accurate information in the museums for countless individuals seeking to connect with the past. No previous experience is required and all information will be provided in advance of the event.

 

We are looking for 10 volunteers to join us for the virtual Transcribe-a-Thon!

 

Pease send an email to Chris Pritchett (cpritchett@kpmg.com) and Jeff Norris (jnorris@kpmg.com), both fellow ASMC Washington Chapter members, if you are interested in joining our Teams meeting virtual Transcribe-a-Thon, no later than September 21, 2020.

Helping Our Community One Meal At A Time


On September 17, 2019 and January 28, 2020 twelve ASMC Washington Chapter members donated their time and talent to help DC Central Kitchen.  DC Central Kitchen prepares and deliver more than 5,000 meals to partner homeless shelters, rehabilitation clinics, halfway houses, and afterschool programs each day.

The team of volunteers gathered at DC Central Kitchen to help the kitchen staff with various tasks for the morning. Wearing hair and beard nets and aprons, the team was divided into small groups to help the DC Central Kitchen staff in different parts of the kitchen. The volunteers cut vegetables for bolognese sauce, helped prepare the Bolognese sauce, cut various fruits, prepared meals and snack boxes for community centers, and helped DC Central Kitchen with other tasks. At the end of the morning, the team had time to reflect on the impact the organization makes in our community and enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by the kitchen staff at DC Central Kitchen as a gesture of their gratitude!   Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers!
