Koinonia is a wonderful organization with a strong volunteer corps of 60 plus people, working weekly to provide emergency food, financial and clothing assistance to the neediest in the Franconia community of Fairfax County. A great example of a group of people doing much with limited space and resources.

Koinonia supports families in need in the Springfield/Alexandria area of Fairfax County. The workers and volunteers are supportive, knowledgeable and always quick to assist those in need with food, clothing or other assistance as needed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My students at Edison High school have organized food and clothing drives and have supported Koinonia activities with volunteers. Everyone we work with is very professional and helpful. This organization helps people in our community when they need it most.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes, just pray that they can continue to grow and help more of our community.

Koinonia supports our community so our JROTC class works hard to support Koinonia. Last year we held several events (fundraisers, food drive) and this year we are working on a coat drive already. Everything donated is greatly appreciated and the staff and volunteers are so hard working and kind. For last year's food drive the volunteers came in specifically to process and prepare the items we delivered. My students remarked later about how organized everything was and how well managed Koinonia is.

As a donor I see first hand how organized and professional the organization is. The volunteers and staff are very kind and supportive.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get them a bigger area to wrok out of. They do so much good for the community but their storage and work areas are so limited.
