Summer Fun Volunteering with ACTS

At ACTS, we're always happy to host groups that serve at our warehouse through our Volunteer Program. While there, our volunteers sort the generous donations which members of our community have provided to their neighbors, mainly non-perishables and clothing.  Since February, we have been lucky enough to welcome the members of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity’s Social Action Committee twice a month.  They show up, rain or shine, with exuberance and excitement at the difference they are making in people’s lives through their relationship with ACTS. The 2017 goal of the Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Omicron Zeta Sigma Chapter’s Social Action Committee is to ensure we make a tangible, social impact within the DMV area in general, but specifically in Prince William County.

In the words of Phi Beta Sigma’s Jermaine Jackson:

“Our chapter’s social action volunteerism impact focus includes a partnership with Action in the Community Through Service (ACTS). ACTS provides a platform for the Prince William County community to donate clothes and food in an effort to help the most vulnerable citizens of our community. The men of Sigma, along with our sisters of Zeta, continue to help ACTS organize the thousands of donated clothing items received on a weekly basis”.

So, we ask you:

Are you looking for a way to serve the community with your family, Scout troop or sports league?  

Are you home from college for the Summer? 

Grab your friends and come spend some time with us at ACTS this Summer! Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, help share your skills with others and to go back to school packed with new experiences and community service hours!!

ACTS has amazing volunteer opportunities for you to share with your friends and family, too!

Do you love working with people? Come join us at the Thrift Store and help people find just what they’re looking at a reasonable price!

Are you super organized and recognize quality when you see it?  Come hang out with us the warehouse and help organize some of our donations, so that members of our community can have access to great items all summer long!

Volunteering during your summer vacation will allow you to go back to school knowing that you’ve affected people’s lives, including your own!!  If you would like to spend some quality time with us this summer, fill out an application or e-mail Jane Anderson, ACTS Volunteer Coordinator at This email address is being protected from spambots.
