This at-home activity will provide patriotic blankets for Capital Caring staff and volunteers to use when we conduct Veterans Appreciation Ceremonies. This is a small way to thank Veterans for their service. Many of our resources have gone to COVID related needs for PPE so we are unable to provide the fleece for this project at this time. We appreciate our communities support to help our veterans. These blankets become a little soft hug. Please sign up at https://volunteerfairfax.civicore.com/index.php?section=volunteerFest&action=viewOpportunity&fwID=27483.

Volunteer Fairfax is a private nonprofit organization founded in 1975. For the past 45 years, our mission has been to create a better community through service, to mobilize people and resources to benefit the community and to connect individuals, youth, groups and corporations to volunteer opportunities.
As the regional volunteer center for the National Capital region, Volunteer Fairfax serves the community in a wide variety of ways.
We provide Information and Referral services to community residents interested in volunteering through VolunteerNow. Individuals may also become engaged though a variety of service programs the Center offers including Volunteers for Change, which provides evening and weekend volunteer projects for busy adults; RSVP, a service program that invites people who are 55+ to engage in their community; and, Volunteer Emergency Management Team, a group of volunteers specially trained and prepared to help the community in the event of a disaster. Additionally, for those seeking opportunities to serve court-appointed hours, we have established the Alternative Community Service Program.
Volunteer Fairfax regularly hosts special events and invites youth and families to volunteer together. These volunteer special events include VolunteerFest in October and Give Together in January on the Martin Luther King Day of Service.
Volunteer Fairfax supports both nonprofits and for-profit organizations. To learn more about our services check out our website, www.volunteerfairfax.org.
