MV Big Flea


The MV Big Flea is Alexandria's largest charity fundraiser.  Each year we collect items from local residents, sell them and return the proceeds to the Mount Vernon Community School PTA for education and enrichment programs.  We've raised $62,000 since 2007 and those funds have paid for teaching supplies, field trips, after school clubs, needy families, art and music and much more.  We rely on volunteers so please donate your time generously.


It’s nearly time for our biggest fundraiser of the year– The Big Flea!   Scheduled for Saturday, April 30th, this year is our 5th and promises to bring out the best in cool local finds, your neighbor’s “junque,” and at least one new opportunity to go home with something BIG!But, first, we need to round up the volunteers to help out with donations.  We have two key opportunities leading up to the big weekend. Every Saturday afternoon from March 5th – April 23rd, we will be taking donations at our “Shop ‘n Drop” location in Old Town Alexandria (719 N. Saint Asaph).  We need volunteers to help staff the warehouse, and others to go out and pick-up donations.  For details on each of these activities and to sign up, click on the following links.  We are using a volunteer organizing service to make this easier for all, including reminders to you a few days in advance of your volunteer gig.
