Join us for Journey’s PROJECT JOY initiative Dec. 3-17, 2017!
Our goal is to create a groundswell of generosity in our area this Christmas season. Here is a list of some of service opportunities our community partners shared with us. Don’t let these projects limit you! We’d love to have groups serving anywhere they feel led.
Please share pictures or posts with #projectjoyrva about how you spread some joy! Thank you!!!
