Volunteer Assignments

For all locations on New Year’s Eve, volunteers will be asked to “sign in” at least one hour before their shift begins at our volunteer headquarters at Durant Recreation Center (1605 Cameron Street, Alexandria 22314). You may do this as early as 4 p.m. and you will receive your free admission badge and a box meal.
