During the current emergency, Volunteer Fairfax, in collaboration with the other members of the Metro Coalition of Volunteer Centers requests that all prospective volunteers contact their local volunteer center by phone or website, or call 1-800-VOLUNTEER, to be connected to the volunteer center nearest where you live. Please do not go to the scene of the disaster since that could slow you down or hinder rescue operations. We urge everyone to attend to the needs of your families and neighbors first and follow instructions of your local emergency management agency.

Storm Jonas:  Volunteer Fairfax Serves During Stormy Weather

StormTemps over the December holidays were unseasonably mild. 2015 was going out like a lamb. Then came January and suddenly it was winter! Storm Jonas was on the way.  Fierce and cold and snowy white.  Advance weather reports warned people to prepare and stay safe. During the height of the storm, a call came in to Fairfax County Emergency Operations Center from a concerned citizen. The caller's mother was in the hospital and the end was near.  Volunteer Fairfax staff sprang into action locating a volunteer with a 4-wheel drive.  Read more…

Connecting Resources to Community Need:  Kudos to the Freddie Mac Community Crew

13096212_10154141882644699_8172831982082970322_nApproximately thirty Freddie Mac volunteers recently participated in the Freddie Mac SERVE Community Day at JC Nalle Community School in Washington, DC. Families in the community were invited for a day of financial education and some family fun! Adults had the opportunity to discuss their credit reports with credit counselors and attend a financial fitness workshop while their children participated in educational financial activities. Parents and kids also enjoyed some fun carnival games with prizes! Kids bounced in the moon bounce and zoomed down inflatable slides and everyone was treated to a complimentary lunch. The DJ kept the music going and some folks just had to bust a move! See photos.
