Valentine’s Challenge, in Honor of MLK, Dr. Day

This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!

Join Volunteer Fairfax’s Volunteers for Change Program on January 19, 2019, in honor of MLK, Jr. Day to tackle their Annual Valentine’s Challenge!

Many college students rely on and look forward to care packages sent by their families throughout the year, but thousands of former foster youth can only watch their roommates and friends open boxes that come from home.

Through Great Expectations, Fairfax County Foster Care, and Foster Care to Success, youth will benefit from your help as the community comes together to make 2,500 valentines for them!

Participation is free and open to the public; drinks and light snacks will be provided.
