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 (50-90 people, depending on the date/time). Bailey's shelter serves adults experiencing temporary homelessness by helping our residents move toward self-sufficiency and success in the community.

We are in need of groups to provide the following:

  • Dinner on the 2nd Sunday of each month
  • Lunch on the 1st, 3rd, & 5th Sundays of each month
  • Lunch & Dinner on the 5th Saturdays of each month (when applicable)

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!

Your group is welcome to commit on a monthly basis, or one-off. For more details, please contact Meagan Perkins, Community & Volunteer Engagement Specialist, at 703-820-7621 or mperkins@nvfs.org.
