Volunteers to be recognized for outstanding contributions to the community.

Volunteer Fairfax, along with the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, will honor 154 local volunteers during the 21th Anniversary Fairfax County Volunteer Service Awards.

The awards ceremony will be held Thursday, April 18, at the Waterford at Springfield in Springfield. With more than 400 guests expected to be in attendance, the awards ceremony is one of the largest community-wide recognition events for volunteers.

The awards honor volunteers who are dedicated to improving life in Fairfax County. Individuals and groups will be honored for their work in supporting such programs and causes as tutoring individuals with developmental disabilities, environmental preservation, mentoring youth, supporting families with children in the NICU, animal rescue, homelessness and hunger.

“Volunteering, as an industry, is what we make it and it and has potential to be transformative and impactful for the community as well as for the individual performing the good deed,” said Jeanne Saunders, executive director of Volunteer Fairfax, in a prepared statement. “So often their efforts are humble but at the Fairfax County Volunteer Service Awards we shine a spotlight on their service.”

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, the honorary chairs, will present awards to the community volunteers, which include their own community champions. Additionally, Virginia bureau chief for ABC7/WJLA-TV and News Channel 8, Jeff Goldberg, will emcee the program.
