First Aid Kits Needed at ACCA for Volunteer Fairfax 9/11 Day of Service

For over 20 years, Volunteer Fairfax has hosted its annual fall volunteering event, VolunteerFest, to mobilize volunteers across Fairfax County to help nonprofits and government agencies accomplish wish list projects, meet new volunteers and secure donation needs. We are honored to work with Volunteer Fairfax on a special day of service happening across the country. This year VolunteerFest will take place on Saturday, September 11 or Patriot Day, a National Day of Service and Remembrance. 

ACCA's at-home project asks volunteers to assemble first aid kits from the safety of their homes. The first aid kits you make will be distributed to families who receive food from the Annandale Christian Community for Action (ACCA) food pantry. Kits can be assembled anytime before 9/11. Kits can be dropped off at ACCA between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm on September 11. This is a good project for scouts or youth groups!

Stuff the Bus to Benefit ACCA

Stuff the Bus began in 2011 in response to a critical need to help restock the shelves of local food pantries after the holidays. This collaborative program is a partnership between Fairfax County Government and local nonprofits. Now in its 10th year, Stuff the Bus continues to support food assistance efforts for families and households. Since inception, Stuff the Bus has collected over 220 tons of food to feed hungry people in Fairfax County.

The next Stuff the Bus events to benefit ACCA will take place on Saturday, September 11, in honor of National Day of Service, and on Saturday, October 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The ACCA food pantry will benefit from the buses parked at George Mason Regional Library and Belvedere Elementary.
