We at AFAC treasure each of our volunteers and the gifts that they bring. Collectively, in normal times, more than 3,000 volunteers donate close to 50,000 volunteer hours. Each year, AFAC staff gathers to decide which volunteers to recognize from this great group. This is a tough decision each year, but this year was the hardest of all.
Here are the 2021 Volunteer Award winners:
Volunteers of the Year: Doris Bennett (pictured on the left) & Volunteers who served over 200+ hours between March 2020 - March 2021 (some pictured on the top right)
Teen Volunteers of the Year: Akiva Dienstfrey & Lillian Thro
Community Partners of the Year: Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation & Kinder Haus Toys (donations delivery on the bottom left)
Volunteer Group of the Year: The Carrot Crew
Our traditional volunteer picnic has morphed into a volunteer recognition program that will take place on Sunday, June 13 at The Board Room. Unfortunately, due to COVID, we are only able to invite those that we are honoring (and a few of their guests). We hope to celebrate all of our volunteer more fully next year.
