NCS Volunteers Earn Awards at 2024 NCS Recognition Ceremony

Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services honored volunteers at the 2024 Volunteer Recognition Ceremony on Saturday, May 4, 2024 at The Westin Tysons Corner.

More than 150 volunteers and Hunter Mill Supervisor Walter Alcorn attended the breakfast ceremony. Dranesville Supervisor James Bierman and NCS Director Lloyd Tucker gave remarks. NCS South County Senior Center Director Sharnel Jones served as emcee at the event, which returned to an in-person gathering for the first time since 2019.

"We are proud of the direct service our volunteers provide in the form of food box distribution, meal service, translation assistance, social visits, vaccination clinic support, and other services at our senior centers, community centers and teen centers," said Tucker. "More than 90 percent of our volunteers say they feel their service makes a difference."
