ALIVE! (ALexandrians InVolved Ecumenically) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of volunteers from nearly 40 religious congregations and the community working together to help those in need in Alexandria, Virginia. Founded in 1969, ALIVE! is the largest private safety net for the needy in the city of Alexandria, addressing short-term to long-term needs for those less fortunate in the community. ALIVE! serves over 10,000 Alexandrians annually with shelter; low-cost early childhood education and childcare; financial help for rent, utilities, medical care and other critical needs; emergency food; and deliveries of donated furniture and housewares.
More than 700 volunteers a year help ALIVE! fulfill the mission to put faith and love into action. Of ALIVE!'s seven programs, five are staffed and managed entirely by volunteers. ALIVE! is Alexandrians helping Alexandrians.
ALIVE! needs volunteers to assist with furniture pick-up and deliveries and food distribution. If you would like to volunteer or find out more, contact Mike Oliver at (703) 683-3547. For other contacts at ALIVE!
