About

How you can make a difference:

NVFS Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter needs your group's help to feed our shelter residents and Hypothermia Prevention Program guests on weekday evenings! Bailey's shelter serves adults experiencing temporary homelessness by helping our residents move toward self-sufficiency and success in the community.

What you can do:

  • Assemble a small group (maximum of 8 people, ages 12 and up) to prepare and donate dishes to serve family-style, donate individual bagged/boxed meals, or donate a catered meal (enough to serve our 50 residents and approximately 40 Hypothermia Prevention Program guests)

  • Bring the meal to the shelter

  • Join us in the kitchen to serve your meal to residents and guests; or simply drop it off for our staff to serve!

For details and available dates, please contact Meagan Perkins, Community & Volunteer Engagement Specialist, at 703-820-7621 or mperkins@nvfs.org.
