Braddock District Community Champions


Jim Bertolini, 2016 Braddock District Community Champion

Jim Bertolini, dedicated volunteer in Fairfax County, was recognized on Friday, April 8th for his outstanding contributions to the community and to his neighbors. Mr. Bertolini was selected by Supervisor John C. Cook as Braddock District’s 2016 “Community Champion”. This award is given annually by Volunteer Fairfax and recognizes volunteers from across the County who make a real difference in the lives of their neighbors. Mr. Bertolini assisted his neighbor, Joan Crofford, in cleaning her home, which had been cited for hoarding issues. The effort put forth by Mr. Bertolini and the neighbors he helped organize helped Ms. Crofford stay in her home. Mr. Bertolini has also been known to get groceries for neighbors with disabilities, and even found a permanent shelter solution for a young homeless man who had been sleeping on a bench near Accotink Park for weeks. Fairfax County is grateful for his service, and looks forward to reading more about his incredible achievements in the future.
