First Aid Kit Collection – VolunteerFest

September 17 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

We will do good as we remember those lost on 9-11 and honor the heroes who continue to serve the country and community.

In Fairfax County, VolunteerFest will bring together hundreds of volunteers countywide to complete projects for local nonprofits and local government agencies on Saturday, September 17, 2022.

ACCA’s project is to collect First Aid kits for families who receive food from the ACCA food pantry. Assemble them at home and drop off on 9/17 at the pantry.

 Kits can be assembled anytime before 9/17. Kits can be dropped off at ACCA between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm on September 17. This is a good project for scouts or youth groups! 

The first step is to collect the items which you can start anytime. We will collect on September 17 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

You can be a bit creative with the items that you use. Items that are perfect for these first aid kits are listed below:

  • Gauze Pads
  • Bandages (all sizes)
  • Gauze Roller Bandage
  • Triple Antibiotic Ointment
  • Tweezers
  • Adhesive Tape
  • Latex Gloves
  • Saline Wash
  • Alcohol Pad
  • Eye Wash 
  • Eye Pads
  • Q-Tips
  • Ear Plugs
  • Sunscreen

 Another option is to purchase a first aid kit and bring to the pantry on 9/17.
