" Thank you for making our group volunteer project so easy. Since the volunteer group worked through Volunteer Alexandria, you had everything organized and ready. The day of the project you brought all the supplies and tools, including directional signs for the volunteers to show them the proper entrance. It was completely unstressful for me as the volunteer coordinator since you had done all of the logistics and planning. Your services to our philanthropic businesse and nonprofits is extremely valuable. Please continue your good work." Jane CollinsCommunications/Volunteer Coordinator at
