We are a singles group (age 40 and up) focused on combining social and volunteer activities that will take place mainly in Northern Virginia. Events include (1) hands-on volunteer activities, (2) a social gathering before or after the volunteer activity so members can get to know each other, and (3) social fundraising events that are sponsored by a 501(c)(3) organization.
Volunteer activities in which we have participated are helping at local thrift stores, food banks, church-based activities, cleaning up area parks, and events sponsored by various non-profit organizations looking for groups to lend a helping hand.
We have a few basic rules: (1) this is a singles group, so please be single; (2) you must have a genuine self photo posted; (3) don't sign up for an event and back out at the last minute; and (4) socialize and have fun while helping others.
There is an annual fee of $5 that will go to the semi-annual meetup.com fees as well as any costs incurred for labels and supplies. You can pay this $5 online with a debit or credit card.
We look forward to your involvement should you decide to join!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
