Come see what some of Alexandria's amazing nonprofits are doing.

Summer is a good time to learn more about Alexandria nonprofits and how they are serving our community. Join ACT in visiting these nonprofits in an informal setting as part of our group. You will be informed and amazed. Let's go together!
