Fairfax Station neighbors donated more than 500 lbs. of food and individually more than $500 for the Lorton Capital Area Food Bank during the pandemic. People left free homemade masks in a box at the bus stop along with book donations. That led to the largest community project that is a community little free library.
According to the Fairfax Station Connection, “Community members came together this summer, and designed and built the first chartered Little Free Library (#104242) in Fairfax Station which is available to everyone (one tree over from our bus stop). The community has donated to date more than 200 books which included the youth recommending books, and others. There was a socially distanced champagne toast for the unveiling.”
As per Fairfax Station Connection, “We still value our privacy but are finding community engagement is an increased value as well. At the base of the library, some “kindness” rocks have started to show up. Outdoor social distance yoga classes are occurring and plans are underway for recognizing our veterans and doing a community history project. Although we have been around since the mid-seventies, we are also starting our first “welcome committee” for new neighbors. Not that we were looking for it, but something has changed for the better.”
