In conjunction with national Make A Difference Day, VolunteerFest engages hundreds of volunteers at Fairfax County nonprofits and government agencies on the fourth Saturday of each October. The 2015 VolunteerFest® will be held on Saturday, October 24.
Each April, Volunteer Fairfax recognizes outstanding community volunteers. In the award's 23 year history, more than 2,700 volunteers have been honored. Nominees and award winners are recognized at a breakfast ceremony supported by area businesses, elected officials and community leaders.
To celebrate Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service, Volunteer Fairfax hosts Give Together, a family volunteer program which encourages young children to complete age-appropriate service projects in one central location. The event takes place every January on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
