Fairfax, VA October 2, 2019 – Hundreds of Fairfax residents will be out and about “doing good” during the 24th Annual VolunteerFest region-wide days of service. VolunteerFest encourages those interested in volunteerism to take this opportunity to connect with local nonprofits, learn about their mission and work on projects specifically designed for the service days. Volunteer Fairfax mobilizes people and resources to meet regional community needs.
VolunteerFest takes place on October 26th and 27th. This region-wide community service event helps nonprofits accomplish tasks that they would not have the time or resources to manage on their own. This is a great way for families to involve children in volunteerism since there are events for almost every age group in most county districts.
