    I live near Bennington Woods (Barnstead drive). My name is Rajeswari.

    I am working full time, so don't have too much free time.

    Do you drive? Go to Reston library and ask them whether they need volunteers. There is also another organization called cornerstonesva.org. You can sign up through their website. Also, there are lot of meetup groups in Reston, join them.

    Where do you live in Reston?

    I live in Herndon, VA therefore I can only speak for Herndon. There are some volunteering opportunities in Herndon. You can go to the Herndon Public Library, The Closet (it's a thrift store that is run by church), Herndon Community Center to seek for volunteer opportunities. As many have posted already, there are many meetup groups for your sister to join. My only minor complain is that the public transportation isn't that great here. We have bus service but it's not as good as what I experienced in big cities like chicago. Therefore you do run into car dependency.
