New Year’s Day
- SERVE is looking for a volunteer group (6-8 people) age 16+ to prepare and serve brunch and dinner on New Year’s Day. It’s a great way to start off 2019 by providing a home-cooked meal for adults and kids in a homeless situation! Please call Julie at (571) 748-2674 for details.
- Keep Prince William Beautiful is in need of volunteers for their next litter survey on Dec. 20 from 8:30 a. m.-12:00 p. m. It’s a fun way to get out in the fresh air, help the environment and enjoy a free lunch afterwards! For more information, please contact Nicole at [email protected].
- Leesylvania State Park needs volunteers for their monthly shoreline cleanups to pick up trash and driftwood. The work days are Jan. 19, Feb. 16, March 23, April 13 and May 18. Please register by calling the visitor center at (703) 583-6904 so they have your name to waive the park entry fee.
- Brain Injury Services needs a volunteer to befriend an Italian American gentleman recovering from a stroke who lives in Lorton. Duties would entail monthly outings in the community to enjoy history, museums, etc. Language skills in Italian would be a HUGE plus. Client does not drive so he would either need to meet volunteer at outings or volunteer could drive. Please contact Michelle at [email protected] for more details.
