Spring2ACTion Marketing Materials
It's time to get the word out about Spring2ACTion!

In our commitment to sustainability, this year, ACT for Alexandria is taking a step towards eco-friendliness and pairing down our collateral to solely providing yard signs and business cards. If you have your t-shirts from years past, we encourage you to wear those!

Materials Distribution

  • Please indicate below if you're planning to pick up a complimentary yard sign from the ACT for Alexandria office, 201 N. Union Street, Suite 110 - pick up will be Tuesdays and Thursdays between April 2-23, while supplies last. You can also pick up some business cards.

  • Place yard signs strategically in high-traffic areas to capture attention and inspire action.

  • Share photos of your signs on social media using #Spring2ACTion to amplify your message and engage with the community.

  • You can also create your own signs, t-shirts and flyers using the downloadable graphics in the Nonprofit Toolkit.

Impact Story:
Tenants and Workers United
We encourage you to share your story so we can highlight you in our social media and emails!

"Each summer, Tenants and Workers United prioritizes providing a free, quality summer program for Alexandria youth of color from low-income backgrounds.

Without the generous support of the individual donors who give to their local nonprofits through Spring2ACTion, it would be difficult to carry out a fully funded program with the snacks, refreshments, and activities that our youth love and need.

Tenants and Workers United is inspired by the generosity of our Alexandria neighbors, and we appreciate the extra love they send our way each spring! Thanks to Spring2ACTion, our local youth get to have a summer experience that they may not get otherwise."
