Casa Chirilagua Volunteer and Donation Needs

Our ministry partner, Casa Chirilagua, is doing an incredible job caring and serving for the Arlandria Community, which has been hard by the COVID-19 virus.

Sundays 3-5 pm – Sorting and bagging donations
Mondays 10 am – 1 pm – Receiving Donations
Tuesdays 10 am – 1 pm – Sorting and bagging donations
Wednesdays 10 am – 12 pm – Sorting and bagging donations
Thursdays 10 am – 12 pm – Sorting and bagging donations
Thursdays 1 pm – 4 pm – Receiving Donations
Fridays 9:30 am – 12 pm – Food Distribution

Casa Chirilagua also is need of food and household donations.  See the list below for the items needed.  They can be dropped off at their office (4109 Mt Vernon Ave, Alexandria, VA 22305) on Thursdays between 1 pm -4 pm.  If you are unable to donate during that time window, please email [email protected] and we’d be happy to arrange for someone to pick up items from you at another time.
