Every year, we recognize and honor the work of volunteers who have supported our nonprofit partners and our community. Volunteers are vital to assist in fulfilling our missions and we couldn't do what we do without the help of those who donate their time, talents, and skills. The Volunteers are the Heart of Alexandria event celebrates our volunteers who have given their time and experience to make Alexandria a better place for all of us. 

Due to this pandemic and a lot of zooming, we have decided to change it up a bit. We will continue to highlight our stars through several different awards. In addition, we will recognize every volunteer who has volunteered in 2020 no matter what their tasks was or hours served. We will do so through public displays and a social media campaign during National Volunteer Week, April 18-24, 2021 and we hope our community will celebrate with us! We are sure that you agree, the volunteers in 2020 really ROCKED!

The Jen Walker Team celebrates and honors each and every volunteer who dedicated their time to support Alexandria. Because of their critical support, our community continues to grow and thrive. Many thanks to Volunteer Alexandria for their important role in ensuring crucial volunteer needs are met. Together we Spread Kindness and Build Community! - The Jen Walker Team
