Activities and Things to do Around the Holidays

The holidays are a very exciting time, especially in Alexandria and the DC area. King Street in Old Town is lit up by sparkling lights in the trees, the National Christmas Tree Lighting in DC, and all of the fun, festive activities that occur. The holidays are a great time for volunteering, but sometimes it is difficult to find an opportunity, since so many want to give back during the holiday season.  

This is where we come in- we will be keeping this page updated with all of the holiday volunteering and donation opportunities that have been posted on our site!  If you see an opportunity that interests you, click on the name of the opportunity and sign up or express interest! The nonprofit will then contact you with more information.
