Maintaining current contact information helps the board and its committees reach owners and tenants with important board announcements as well as during emergency events such as a water/gas main break or to report storm damage to vehicles or other property.  Each owner and paying tenant should complete a separate form.  Non-resident owners should enter their address at the end of the form.  Note: You do NOT need to have a Google account in order to update and submit the form.

Hunter Mill District News, October 7, 2020


Oct. 7, 2020

Dear Neighbors,

The county announced yesterday that almost 3,000 individuals have volunteered 96,006 hours since mid-March to assist with pandemic relief efforts. And it should be noted, saving the county a substantial amount of our tax dollars. During these difficult days, our volunteers have stepped up to make a difference and I am grateful and humbled by your efforts  thank you!
I'm especially heartened to see the outstanding volunteer efforts by our younger residents! Pictured above are volunteers for a recent Cornerstone's food drive. Another example is Curtis Bushee's Eagle Scout project. He enlisted 22 volunteers to make 1,000 masks that were donated to the Reston Police District Station this week and pictured at right. Thank you Curtis!
The pandemic is still ongoing and volunteer efforts will be critical for the foreseeable future. There are numerous ways to help, even from home, so I encourage you to volunteer. Here are some upcoming opportunities:
Coat Closet with Cornerstones
This year there is expected to be a greater need for coat donations for residents in our vulnerable communities. New or gently used, clean coats, as well as new hats, gloves, mittens and scarves may be donated through Nov. 6 at several Hunter Mill District locations. Learn more. Volunteers are needed for the coat distribution; contact Susan Alger at susan.alger@cornerstonesva.org or call 571-323-1383 to volunteer.
The annual VolunteerFest is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 24 and Sunday, Oct. 25. VolunteerFest is a region-wide weekend of service that mobilizes hundreds of volunteers in a variety of volunteer events across Fairfax County. Residents of all ages are encouraged to participate. Due to the pandemic, Volunteer Fairfax has incorporated at-home (virtual) projects from which you can select. Opportunities include making holiday cards, cleaning up yards and assisting with food drives. Learn more.
