In celebration of our 10th Annual Spring for Alexandria Community Service Day, Volunteer Alexandria has asked active volunteers a few questions about their engagement and involvement. Readers will have the opportunity to “meet” a variety of great people and businesses, who give their time, talent, and energy, to assist those in need every week up to May 4. For more details about the 10th Annual Spring for Alexandria Community Service Day, visit www.VolunteeAlexandria.org.
Meet Adrian Edwards, an employee of The McCormick Group who has volunteered in the Spring for Alexandria Community Service Day for several years now.
Adrian, why do you volunteer?
I volunteer because my company participates, and to promote community involvement.
What is your favorite volunteer experience?
I don’t have a favorite volunteer experience, but every time, I love volunteering together with my colleagues.
What was one time you knew you made a difference?
Every time I volunteer I make a difference, because volunteering with my colleagues gets the job done, and contributes to the development of the community.
How old were you when you started volunteering?
