We enjoyed attending another energizing Volunteer Service Awards breakfast yesterday hosted by Volunteer Fairfax! We are so thankful to our wonderful nominee Jim Deal, who served more than 400 hours last year, and 1,500 hours in the past 9 years. His service as a Financial Mentor, and his support for prospective mentees as they prepare to enter the program has helped so many clients improve their financial outlook.

We also want to congratulate RSVP-Northern Virginia Volunteer of the Year Shelley Brosnan! She has supported us in so many ways over the years, as well as so many other organizations in Fairfax County.
