2012 Holiday Sharing Kid on Bike 

Mrs. C sent this photo of her happy kids on Christmas morning and this note, which has been translated from Spanish: “Through this letter I am thanking you for all of the gifts we received in December. It was a very special day. In our home there was so much happiness because God shared with us this special family. May God bless your homes and your hearts and that this year be filled with blessings for everyone.”   


2012 Holiday Sharing Dental Volunteers  

Volunteering is fun. The staff at
Alexandria Children’s Dentistry
are all smiles during a break.

Christmas in the Summer

DC attorney Jen Klar and her mom scour the ads for coats and jackets after the holidays.
They purchase jackets in all sizes at the lowest prices and next year, plan to donate them
to The Fund for Alexandria’s Child Holiday Sharing Program. Their numbers are approaching
500! Which got us to thinking…kids don’t need these coats at Christmas-time; they need
them well before that. Plus, there are plenty of smart bargain shoppers out there. So please
keep an eye open for great prices for “Christmas in the Summer” when we will start
collecting warm jacket-gloves-and-hat combos for children who have experienced abuse
or crisis. More info later.
