National Volunteer Week

Gather up your canned foods and tie your shoe laces tight… it’s National Volunteer Week. Whether you are an active community volunteer (and thank you so much by the way!) or you are looking to get involved, this week stands as a wonderful opportunity to learn more about your local organizations and how the dedication of your time truly makes all of the difference. Hagerman Group prides itself on its community involvement; through our Loving Our Community initiative, we are able to give back to organizations that have greatly impacted our lives and the lives of our cherished community members. From Rappahannock Big Brothers Big Sisters to the American Red Cross, we find the deepest fulfillment in ensuring these organizations can provide care to those in need.

Our community of Fredericksburg remains unique in the respect that supporting local businesses and non-profit organizations still stands as a top priority. If you are interested in volunteer work, here are some helpful tips to get started:

Offer to bring meals to a family in need

Contact your local public school to see what volunteers they need

Organize a neighborhood yard sale and donate the proceeds to your favorite local organization

Visit your local Senior Center

Collect canned food within your office and donate it to your local food pantry

Donate your gently-used clothes to your neighborhood women’s shelter

For office bonding, get together one evening to create care packages for troops overseas
