As an opportunity to give back to the local community, the Alexandria Bar Association’s Young Lawyers are fielding a team for Spring for Alexandria’s 7th Annual Community Service Day. Here is what the group had to say about helping out:
The volunteer event will be on Friday, May 16 from 12:30pm to 4:15pm. Consider helping out if you can. Each team will be assigned a project at a local charity, park, or other similar location in need of repair-which will enable the team to provide hands-on assistance to individuals and organizations around the city. This is a great opportunity to get out of the office, learn more about the community, and do some good with your fellow young lawyers.
There are two ways you can help. First, visit our team page and sign up to volunteer with our team on May 16. Spring for Alexandria requests a $25 donation, but it is not required-we are focusing on volunteering more than fundraising, so sign up as a volunteer if you can. The deadline to register as a volunteer is May 1, so sign up here today.
Second, consider providing a donation to this great event and Volunteer Alexandria. All of the money goes toward the tools and equipment for this event and Volunteer Alexandria’s general fund (you can read more about Volunteer Alexandria here). In addition to providing worthwhile support, we are competing with teams across the city. So our fundraising tally will help us show that the Young Lawyers are active in and supporting the community.
Consider helping out if you are willing and able.
