With our We <3 ALX initiative, we aim to demonstrate our love for Alexandria by serving our city and building connections with our neighbors. Here are ways you can get involved this summer:
Our friends at Casa Chirilagua do great work in the city of Alexandria offering classes for adults and camps for children. We have the chance to serve in both capacities this summer!
Computer Literacy Class – Tuesdays in July
Help make this class the best it can be by volunteering to help with childcare. Serving in this way will allow the instructors and students to grow in their computer literacy skills while knowing their kids are being cared for. Volunteer opportunities are on the following Tuesdays from 7PM-8:30PM: 7/10, 7/17, 7/24, 7/31. To volunteer, please sign up here.
Game On! Pop-Up Camp at Casa Chirilagua – August 20th-24th
We’re taking VBS to the community this summer and “popping up” around Alexandria. We’ll spend a week of camp with our friends at Casa Chirilagua from August 20th-24th from 9AM-12PM. Serving will entail helping campers with games, crafts, music, and Bible studies. You can serve as little as one day or as much as all week! To volunteer, please sign up here.
DBC’s Game On! Pop-Up Camps – First two Fridays in August
In addition to the week with Casa Chirilagua, were also hosting Game On! Pop-Up Camps at two other places in Alexandria:
