What do participants say about Spring for Alexandria?

“Thank you so much for making us part of Spring for Alexandria’s 7th Annual Community Service Day. Our community is a better place because of you guys (volunteers)! With this new look, the bathrooms are a lot more inviting and appealing for the students in the after-school programs! Your creativity and hard work is very valuable and appreciated by all of us at Community Lodgings and the Brent Places families, please share our gratitude to your family and your volunteers’ team. As you may know, Community Lodgings centers have served, and continues to serve, the community of Alexandria, providing families with education, support and help to develop skills and make important life decisions. Thank you for your time and commitment.” Antonio Tamariz, Community Lodgings

“We were fortunate enough to have two volunteer teams at Alexandria Adult Day Services Center (ADSC) for this year’s Spring for Alexandria event. I have to say I was quite impressed with the level of commitment and professionalism shown by our volunteers. One group was assigned a gardening project. The day before the event we had heavy rain and half the patio area was covered in water. The volunteers put on boots and got to work leaving the patio looking 100% better than it had before. I commend this group for their hard work and dedication to this service project. Thanks again for making a great match!” Kimberly Taylor-Davis, Division of Aging & Adult Services

“I am really pleased with the hard work your crews put in today without complaint. The pool area looks fantastic. It’s a relief to me as we are really striving to improve our customer experiences at our City aquatic facilities. A well-kept appearance or curb appeal gives an important first impression. We’re better off this year compared to much of our past.” Ralph Baird, Recreation Manager Aquatics
