10th Anniversary of Spring for Alexandria and the Community Service Day!
Presented by Volunteer Alexandria and the City of Alexandria
Since the start of Spring for Alexandria in 2008, thousands of volunteers have donated more than 21,000 hours, valued over $530,000 in economic impact. Half a million dollar in 10 days! Thank you for pitching in and helping our community!
Here some responses from our partners:
"We’re grateful to the volunteers & Volunteer Alexandria for joining us on Spring for Alexandria Day and the work they put into beautifying the home the City leases to us for formerly homeless veterans. We’re happy to be a part of a community that recognizes the value of serving our neighbors, regardless of their living situation.” (Pam Michell, Executive Director, New Hope Housing, Inc.)
“Just wanted to circle back around and say THANK YOU for the hard work you put into Spring for Alexandria! Community Lodgings was glad to be a volunteer site this year, and you can see that the volunteer team worked very hard to beautify our lawn/grounds, clean our vans, and clear out our shed of unnecessary items! Just wanted to reiterate how pleased we were with the results. Thanks for partnering with us.” (Sarah A. Foote, Volunteer and Development Coordinator, Community Lodgings)
“Ivy Hill Cemetery reaps a huge benefit by having these volunteers come to help us. We have 22 acres of age old plantings which our grounds crew does not have time to tackle. In places, the cemetery has become quite overgrown. By working on one section a year, our volunteers are making a remarkable difference in the appearance of our grounds and making it easier to stay ahead of the situation. They are a true gift and a pleasure to work with!”(Lucy Burke Goddin, Ivy Hill Cemetery Historical Preservation Society)
“We were thrilled to have help for your service day at our Brain Injury Services ADAPT clubhouse! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!” (Michelle Thyen, Director of Community and Volunteer Engagement, Brain Injury Services)
