On Saturday, October 5, local Young Professionals invited all ages to participate in a Volunteer Fair and Service Project. The event benefitted Volunteer Arlington partner, Bridges to Independence, an organization that works daily to lead individuals and families out of homelessness and into stable and independent futures..

"People from the very young to the very old have a part to play", commented participant Kate Oberg. "Shy or outgoing, wanting a simple task or more complex work, there are many ways to help."
"I love that Volunteer Arlington gives me the opportunity to connect with friends old and new based on a mutual commitment to serving others. There are so many ways to give back but it can be hard to narrow them all down. Volunteer Arlington is an amazing resource to get connected and serve in my own community." - Hannah Dannenfelser, Community Involvement Ambassador at Arlington Community Federal Credit Union
