Marion Brunken of Volunteer Alexandria Explores Getting Involved in Your Community
Through the Noise #90
Marion Brunken // Executive Director // Volunteer Alexandria
On Through the Noise, we talk to many nonprofits that depend on the goodwill of the community to donate their time and skills in order to thrive. Volunteer Alexandria is the go-to organization to match your experience, availability, and goals with a nonprofit in Alexandria that would greatly benefit from your assistance. Volunteering is not only a wonderful way to meet like-minded people, it’s an excellent team-builder for organizations and businesses of all sizes looking to give back to the community.
Marion, a native of Germany and a social worker by trade, has been the Executive Director, at Volunteer Alexandria since 2012 and she has been involved in the Washington, D.C. non-profit arena for over 17 years, working with communities, nonprofit and government agencies, and volunteers. Previously, she served for eight years as the Employee Engagement Manager at Freddie Mac.
Volunteer Alexandria, a 501 c (3) nonprofit organization since 1980, serves as a link between individual and group volunteers and area nonprofit organizations. They work in partnership with businesses, associations, other nonprofits, and local government to inspire people to volunteer, and to engage volunteers, six years and older, in activities that strengthen our community. Their vision is that all Alexandrians are engaged to make a difference in our community and their mission is to build a better community by inspiring and mobilizing people to volunteer.
