“There are so many good organizations doing great work in our City,” shares Canek. “Progress is made and problems are solved when a community comes together to support one another.”
As a member of the Alexandria City Council and long-time civic leader and healthcare advocate, Canek knows that there’s only so much government can do to support Alexandrians and it is important that Alexandria has a thriving nonprofit community. He knows it is critical to have nonprofits that address a range of issues – from social justice and education, to housing and health. Alexandria’s nonprofits tackle some of the toughest challenges and they are having a meaningful impact on peoples’ lives.
He also believes in the power and potential of Spring2ACTion. “We are a community that is fortunate to have so many individuals willing to give of their time and resources to help make Alexandria better,” he explains. “It’s amazing to see.” He has seen firsthand how donations – no matter how large or small – can help an organization flourish. “There are causes that start out small but by providing a platform to shine a light on their efforts, you can help foster the momentum that allows them to grow and go on to have greater impact.”
