Highlights of the Month
February in Review
We were happy to celebrate Black History month across the agency as well as highlight the importance of literacy among the youth of our programs. The Wedgewood Community Center in Annandale hosted its 2nd Annual Literacy Party with the help of the Fairfax County Police Department
and George C. Marshall High School Key Club
. That day, 49
children received 2 books each which will help them to strengthen their literacy skills all while enjoying a great story. We were honored to have the students from the Key Club present as well as the officers from the Bike Patrol. Your service means so much.
Additionally, many volunteers served at our Hypothermia Prevention and Response Program. With less than 3 weeks remaining, we still have a need for volunteers to serve. It's not too late to get involved! If you are available, sign up today for shifts during the following weeks:
Number of Volunteers: Over 910
Hours Served: Over 985
Volunteers Using VolunteerHub: 373
"Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need."
