We are a singles group (age 40 and up) focused on combining social and volunteer activities that will take place mainly in Northern Virginia. We’ll plan our events around a volunteer activity, but will have a get-together before or after the volunteering, so members can get to know each other.
We’d like to spread the joy, so will be volunteering at a variety of different venues: helping at some local thrift stores, food banks, church-based activities, but also cleaning up the parks and perhaps tagging some birds! Although both are valuable endeavors, this group will be more about hands-on giving rather than sponsoring or donating.
This is a singles group, so please be single. The emphasis of the group will be on making new friends, both male and female, and having fun while helping others. We welcome input from our members! Please let us know what types of events you would like to see or if you know of anyone that needs help. Members of the group are encouraged to host events.

Volunteers don't get paid, not because they're worthless, but because they're priceless.
