Volunteer Fairfax 9/11 Day of Service to Benefit ACCA
For over 20 years, Volunteer Fairfax has hosted its annual fall volunteering event, VolunteerFest, to mobilize volunteers across Fairfax County to help nonprofits and government agencies accomplish wish list projects, meet new volunteers and secure donation needs. We are honored to work with Volunteer Fairfax on a special day of service happening across the country. This year VolunteerFest will take place on Saturday, September 11 or Patriot Day, a National Day of Service and Remembrance.
ACCA’s at-home project will ask volunteers to assemble first aid kits from the safety of their homes. The first aid kits you make will be distributed to families who receive food from the Annandale Christian Community for Action (ACCA) food pantry. Kits can be assembled anytime before 9/11. Kits can be dropped off at ACCA between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm on September 11. This is a good project for scouts or youth groups!
Stuff the Bus Benefits ACCA Food Pantry
Buses will be accepting non-perishable food donations on Saturday, September 11 (in observance of National Day of Service) and Saturday, October 9, 2021 , from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the George Mason Regional Library, 7001 Little River Turnpike in Annandale, and at Belvedere Elementary School, 6540 Columbia Pike in Falls Church. Fairfax County operates “Stuff the Bus,” a food pantry giving program that partners with nonprofit organizations to restock food pantry shelves.
