ONGOING LOCAL PROGRAMS

Community ID Drive 

Saturday, December 7, at Sojourners Church - 1017 Elliot Ave. 
NOTE: Doors open at 8 am, applicants must arrive before 9 am for orientation.
DOWNLOAD FLYERS: in English; in Spanish
Read update from Russ Linden

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: 
1) Volunteers can help at our drives with data entry, document checking, helping out in the child care room, and simply chatting with our applicants as they wait to start the process (some wait over 90 minutes when we have big turnouts). It helps in some of these roles to speak Spanish, but isn't required. If you'd like to volunteer, contact our interim coordinator Chayla Rowley, at cvilleid@gmail.com.
2)  We need people who already have a government ID to sign up for this Community ID. Doing so will help prevent our cardholders from being stigmatized or labelled. And the more people who have and use our card, the more the word will spread. The following local organizations will give card holders free or reduced admission to their programs: Brooks Family Y, Virginia Discovery Museum, Live Arts, The Paramount (for certain movies and performances), The VA Film Festival.
