Nearly $2 Million raised with hours still to go.

Spring2ACTion, Alexandria’s community day of giving, was in full swing April 26 with 179 nonprofits raising close to $2 million with 7 hours still to go during official giving hours.

Early giving began April 12 with online donations set to close at midnight April 26.

“This is one of those organizations that benefits the entire community,” said Amaia Stecker, who attended and donated during a kickoff event April 19 at ALX Community Waterfront. “There isn’t a particular prioritized group – it is about everyone in the community, whether they are new neighbors or third generation Alexandrians. It’s about our community coming together to benefit those who have need and making sure all needs are met.”

As of 5 p.m. April 26, 5,431 donors raised $1,977,839 for local nonprofits.
