ACTS Hunger Prevention Center

The folks at ACTS Hunger Prevention Center have an urgent need for Donation Drivers Wednesdays thru Sundays.  Drivers can use an ACTS van or their own vehicle for food pickups.  There’s a variety of places to choose from, and you’ll feel great as you deliver food which will help food insecure families in our community!  Please contact Shirley at 703.441.8606, ext. 288 or SCouteau@actspwc.org to learn more.

Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets (A3P)

Animal lovers!  The staff at Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets (A3P) needs volunteers in a variety of positions to help make life better for the fur babies.  Volunteers under 16 can help but must volunteer with a parent.  Just a few hours a day, a week, or a month can make a difference in the lives of these four-legged friends!  Please visit a3padvocates.org/volunteer or email a3padvocates@gmail.com to learn how you can get involved.

Community Feeding Task Force

You can help fight hunger!  The Community Feeding Taskforce Food Helpline urgently needs Spanish speaking volunteers who can assist with answering calls to the Helpline on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Volunteers will answer calls from those in need of food, redirect callers to a food pantry closest to where they live and arrange home deliveries for shut-ins.  Training is provided; however, volunteers will work from home and must have their own computer and Internet access.  It’s a flexible schedule and call volume is low enough someone can do this while working from home.  Please visit bit.ly/314ZgDn for more information and click on the Respond button to sign up.

House of Mercy

Give the gift of a holiday meal!  House of Mercy is asking for $25 donations which will provide a holiday meal for a family of four in Northern Virginia.  Your support can help make for a Happy Holiday Season for vulnerable residents in our community!  Please visit houseofmercyva.org or call 703.659.1636 for more information.
