Smyth to Sponsor Annual Providence District VolunteerFest

 

On Saturday, Oct. 23, Providence District Supervisor Linda Q. Smyth invites the public to participate in the annual Providence District VolunteerFest. This is in conjunction with national Make A Difference Day, as well as Volunteer Fairfax’s VolunteerFest event. The theme is “Building Communities One Day at Time.” Throughout the day, Volunteer Fairfax is sponsoring volunteer opportunities countywide, some of which will occur in the Providence District.
