On the heels of A Show of Hands announcing that they are closing their doors, it is more important than ever to support the arts in our Alexandria, Virginia community. Spring2ACTion, which is going on today, is a GREAT way to do just that.
Today, you can donate to one or more of approximately 100 organizations via the Spring2ACTion online giving platform. The event gives local nonprofit organizations the chance to compete for over $30,000 in grants and prizes.
