AidNow Volunteers

2018 AidNow JumpStart

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 8th annual Aidnow event, JUMP START. This event is organized to benefit the 800+ homeless students K-12th grade in Virginia Beach and provide them a JUMP START on the new school year. With all our amazing partners this year we will be able to again provide these students with backpacks, school supplies, health and beauty products, snacks and haircuts from a local stylists/barbers all free of charge.  Every year this event is truly a life changing experience for these kids and of course for all of us at Aidnow and our wonderful volunteers. Below is a link to a video to show you just a little bit of how JUMP START truly makes a difference for all involved:
