Volunteers Seth Gleeson and Nancy Anderson staffed a Travelers Aid table at Volunteer Arlington event



Many thanks to Volunteers Seth Gleeson (seen in the picture above) and Nancy Anderson (behind the camera!) for staffing a volunteer recruitment table on July 24, sponsored by Volunteer Arlington.  Travelers Aid now offers online applications from links on the airport website and our very own volunteer page.

If any of our volunteers hear of a local event that might give us the opportunity to gain new volunteers we would be delighted to hear from you!  We can set up anywhere on short notice!  We are always on the hunt for new volunteers!
