Community Day is an annual event that provides residents of Washington, D.C. with access to information, goods and services that address a number of socio-economic and health related issues.

Held each summer with a back-to-school focus, Community Day offerings include free school supplies, health/wellness screenings, nutritious foods, physical activity demonstrations, and kid-friendly entertainment.

In 2017, the FCAC distributed 300 backpacks filled with school supplies. Additionally, personal care items such as toiletries, bras, and socks were provided to community members. Community Day attendees enjoyed a picnic-style lunch; received fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables; were entertained by a live band; and learned fun line dances.

Community Day is supported by a variety of local organizations that participate as exhibitors and provide information about useful resources and services. Previous exhibitors include:

  • Washington Area Bicyclist Association (safety tips for bicycling in and around the city)

  •  National Children’s Medical Center (information on asthma and WIC benefits)

  • Be Polished LLC (a modern “charm” school teaching etiquette)

  • SOOMA Eats, (a black-owned, healthy food establishment serving Ward 8)

  • Connect DC (a DC government agency that works to increase technology access in under-served areas)

  • DC Fire and EMS (provided hands on CPR instruction)

  • DTLR – Downtown Locker Room Store (provided volunteers support)
