Volunteer at CRES

We'll have lots of fun ways to get involved at CRES this year - watch this space for more information as volunteer opportunities become available.


Bingo Night Volunteers - We need 8th grade and adult volunteers to help with registration, bingo-checking, ice cream, prizes and cleanup. Sign up to help at either the early or later session here.


Food Rescue Volunteers - Just a 12-minute drive from CRES, the Cornerstones Emergency Self-Sufficiency Services program helps fight hunger right here in Northern Virginia. Each day at lunch, CRES students collect leftover, unopened food and beverages from lunch to donate.

We need parent volunteers to deliver the rescued food every Tuesday and Thursday through the end of the school year. Unfortunately, a small number of volunteers has been shouldering much of the delivery duties so far this year. Please sign up to help with an occasional delivery if you can fit it into your schedule. For more information please contact Tonia Powell, the CRES Food Rescue coordinator, at tonia@bradandtonia.com or 703.201.1922.
