What’s Up Prince William is helping get the word out about two local non-profits.
The media outlet has created many videos and articles about Action in Community Through Service (ACTS) and the Prince William County/Manassas Boys & Girls Clubs during the past few months.
Dumfries-based ACTS offers a 24/7 helpline and housing services. It also runs a Prince William Food Rescue Program and Hunger Prevention Center.
Since the Coronavirus outbreak began, ACTS and local governments and organizations have partnered together to establish the Community Feeding Task Force.
Staff positions are available at the non-profit.
The Prince William County/Manassas Boys & Girls Clubs have three branches — the General Heiser Boys & Girls Club in Dumfries, the Hylton Boys & Girls Club in Dale City, and the Martin K. Alloy Boys & Girls Club of Manassas.
In April, the Hylton Club reopened to children of essential workers and is taking safety precautions.
Various organizations, like Pi Lambda Lambda Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity as well as CultureFest DMV and Judy’s Island Grill, are supporting the boys and girls clubs.
It’s also getting support from individuals, including a father and daughter, and the Town of Dumfries.
What’s Up Prince William is funded by Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire and HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire in Woodbridge, Virginia. The shop owners are very community oriented, assisting with various organizations, including the Boys & Girls Club, The Arc of Greater Prince William, and scouting.
