We Want to Hear YOUR Spring2ACTion Success Story

Impact stories are a great way to call attention to your organization and reach new donors as they visit the Spring2ACTion site. Thank you to Volunteer Alexandria for being the very first to submit an impact story this year!

Volunteer Alexandria

"To inspire and mobilize people to volunteer for a stronger Alexandria community” is our mission. And Spring2ACTion 2021 helped us to do just that! Volunteer Alexandria has been able to continue to serve our community throughout another challenging year. The pandemic might have changed the way we interact with one another, but the need for volunteers was and is still there.

In 2021, the generosity of our donors enabled us to:

  • Distributed more than 1,000,000 meals feeding seniors, families, and ACPS students,
  • Engaged more than 80 students in service-learning and hands-on activities,
  • Trained 1,300 citizens in emergency preparedness,
  • Mobilized more than 14,000 Alexandrians as volunteers to help each other through tough times,
  • Shoveled snow and removed ice for over 30 homebound residents through our Snow Buddy Program,
  • Served over 90 households and 200 children, one month to three years old, and provided new books and educational toys, and much more.

We connect people to community causes every day, 365 days a year.

“I am honored to have the means to help others in need.” – Margaret Powell

Today, due to growing food insecurity, increasing emergency preparedness needs, and continuing economic and health-related repercussion from COVID, the need for services and volunteers continue to rise. And we are ready to serve!"
