Launched in 2007, Spring for Alexandria has engaged thousands of volunteers to support hundreds of Alexandria-based charities. Spring for Alexandria is central to the community's springtime culture and a model of working together for the common good by businesses, nonprofits, neighbors, youth, and government. Two major events are Volunteer Alexandria's Business Philanthropy Summit on May 6 and the Community Service Day on May 15.
The 2015 Community Service Day was a huge successs! Thank you to all of the volunteers, sites, sponsors, and donors who helped make it so. In total, Spring for Alexandria involved over 600 volunteers contributing over 2,400 hours total, which is a value of over $58,700. Volunteers went to a total of 33 sites throughout Alexandria and were involved in projects such as planting, painting, cleaning, building, and much more!
