More than 170 volunteers from Arlington Chamber of Commerce member organizations fanned out across the community as part of the 23rd annual “Chamber Volunteer Day” initiative.

Produced by the organization’s Community Action Committee and sponsored by Amazon, the event cements a connection between the business community and social-safety-net organizations.

“Hopefully today lights the spark of volunteerism and you can pursue it long after this day is over,” said County Board member Christian Dorsey, who spoke at an online kickof.

Dorsey paid special tribute to Community Action Committee chair Christina Armstrong of Bridges to Independence for her leadership.

Following the kickoff, participants volunteered at 13 Chamber-member nonprofits on a variety of projects, ranging from a cleanup along Four Mile Run Trail to several decluttering and cleaning projects.
