National Volunteer Week 2017

Happy National Volunteer Week!

Points of Light designated April 23-29 National Volunteer Week for 2017.

Many Arlington non-profit groups have been celebrating this week by giving thanks and putting the spotlight on their existing volunteers.

At BM Smith, we used the opportunity to draw some attention to our non-profit partners of BM Smith Gives Back, educating residents on how they can volunteer in many ways right in their own neighborhood!


As part of this initiative, we asked several groups to host a table in a mini volunteerism “trade show” at our 3 largest residential properties, inviting residents to enjoy refreshments and raffle prizes while they visited the tables and learn more or sign up for volunteer opportunities.


We held 3 dates, one at each property (Tues-2121; Weds-2200; Thurs-Penrose Square). Local non-profits who participated included


Each organization gained anywhere from 5-30 new contacts for potential volunteers to their organizations. It’s not too late to sign up to volunteer or learn more — you can click on any of the organizations above and find out more about their specific volunteer needs at this point in time.
