Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for everyone to have a safe, secure, and healthy environment to call home is crucial now more than ever. Local nonprofits have been working diligently to serve the needs of residents and families experiencing homelessness and are requesting donations for clothing, food, and other household items. Several area nonprofit partners have indicated specific areas of need – including food, clothing, hygiene, cleaning products and more.
“Our nonprofit partner organizations play an essential role in sheltering individuals and families experiencing homelessness,” said Tom Barnett, Deputy Director the Department of Housing and Community Development’s Office to Prevent and End Homelessness. “By donating items to our nonprofits, we can make a small difference to help those in need during this challenging time.”
How can you help? Volunteer Fairfax is collecting items that will be distributed to nonprofits supporting our homeless community.
Donation Location: Volunteer Fairfax at the Burkholder Building, (10700 Page Avenue, Suite 101, Fairfax, VA) in the City of Fairfax. You can drop off donations Monday-Thursday, from noon to 4 p.m.
