During the current emergency, Volunteer Fairfax, in collaboration with the other members of the Metro Coalition of Volunteer Centers requests that all prospective volunteers contact their local volunteer center by phone or website, or call
1-800-VOLUNTEER, to be connected to the volunteer center nearest where you live. Please do not go to the scene of the disaster since that could slow you down or hinder rescue operations. We urge everyone to attend to the needs of your families and neighbors first and
follow instructions of your local emergency management agency.

We gratefully acknowledge the kind assistance of several super-sleuths who helped us uncover historical facts including Maryan Smith, Jenee Lindner, Lee and Joan Hubbard, and Lynne Garvey Hodge.
