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!

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