Who We Are

The Fredericksburg Area Service League, Inc (FASL), was formed in April, 1993, by a group of women interested in promoting volunteerism in the Fredericksburg area. Founding members saw a distinct need for a central clearinghouse of volunteers from the community at large, who were ready to develop and staff new programs. After several meetings, the membership voted to have issues relating to children as its primary focus.

In our 25 year history, we have donated over $700,000 and given thousands of hours in help. With the continued support from volunteers and growing recognition in the community we are able to support a variety of projects and organizations, which directly impact the lives of local children.
