ALIVE! (ALexandrians InVolved Ecumenically) is comprised of volunteers from religious organizations throughout the city of Alexandria. Since 1968, ALIVE! has been helping the most vulnerable citizens in our community and has become the largest private safety net for those in need. ALIVE! provides shelter, low-cost early childhood education and childcare; financial help for rent, utilities, medical care and other critical needs, food and other household items.
We get questions from people all the time about how and where to donate things like food, furniture, books, and clothing, so we decided to put together a guide. We are still putting the finishing touches on the final document, but so many people are looking for ways to donate items now, we thought it was a good idea to publish what we have.
