Volunteer Alexandria stands united against hate, violence, racism and intolerance against the Black community. As an organization working with a richly diverse volunteer community, we salute the peaceful protestors on the front lines of social injustice making their voices heard. We encourage everyone to take action now to empower our community. Please consider the following:

- Volunteer your time and skills to make Alexandria safe and equitable for all our neighbors, especially those populations vulnerable to COVID -19. 
- Build connections with your Alexandria neighbors by being kind and helpful toward each other. 
- Be an advocate! Use your voices and share them to benefit the community. (Shared Voices of Alexandria, Black Lives Matter)

COVID-19 - Care for Community

Supported by the Jen Walker Team

Organizations still heavily rely on volunteers and in order to honor our commitment to support you, a Care for Community Page was created to list current volunteer opportunities and in-kind needs. Volunteer Alexandria has mobilized more than 8,000 volunteers contributing over 11,000 hours to respond to the pandemic. "Thank you for all of the fantastic work you do! Alexandria is a better place for it." Michelle Krocker, Executive Director, NVAHA

We all need to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect our community. Not everyone is eligible to volunteer in person. Our first priority is keeping volunteers and their families safe during this public health crisis. Before volunteering, it is paramount to review the Safety Guidelines developed by Virginia Service. 

 

We are "on the front lines" and our core mission at Volunteer Alexandria does not and cannot stop. Please consider donating to support us during this situation as we continue to help our community."Knowing it was helping local families since need is so great right now", volunteer.
