The Working Together Committee (WTC) is a group of county employee volunteers whose primary purpose is to organize fundraising activities within the county. Proceeds of these activities benefit county and school employees, Fauquier County residents, and local non-profit organizations in need of financial assistance due to catastrophic circumstances. The WTC also strives to be an additional means of communication for county and school employees.
The WTC is best known for sponsoring Dress Down Fridays. For a weekly $2 donation, employees are permitted to wear business casual clothes on Fridays. Proceeds from Dress Down Fridays are dedicated to a specific employee, county resident or local non-profit organization. Dress Down Friday donations aim to offset expenses incurred due to catastrophic illnesses or serious accidental injuries. Funds have also assisted employees who have lost their homes and possessions due to fires.
The Working Together Committee also hosts an annual Golf Tournament. It is the Committee’s largest fundraising event. Other fundraisers include silent auctions, raffles, and plant sales. The majority of all funds raised are used to assist individuals in need. The WTC is always looking for new and inventive ways to raise funds. Employees are encouraged to contact any WTC representative with fundraising ideas or to volunteer. The WTC also awards an annual scholarship to a County employee and/or an employee dependent.

Please contact a WTC representative at (540) 422-8001 or 10 Hotel Street, Warrenton, VA 20186 if you have any questions about the committee.
