Holiday Volunteering: New Hope Housing

New Hope Housing is seeking support for the homeless men, women and children in their local shelter and transitional housing programs this holiday season.

The holiday season is here and that means Alexandria and surrounding communities seek volunteers for many and different causes.

The Alexandria Patches are highlighting good causes seeking volunteers during this holiday season. If you'd like your initiative to be featured, please email Old Town Alexandria Patch at sharon.mcloone@patch.com.
