Alexandria Office on Women Seeks Donations for Children’s Holiday Party
Toys and Gift Card Donations Needed for Mothers and Their Children

Every year, the Alexandria Office on Women organizes a holiday party for mothers and children who have been recently served by the Domestic Violence Program. At the party, the families are reunited with past shelter friends and staff, enjoy a holiday meal together, and take pictures with Santa Claus. Each family also receives a bag of gifts for their children, which they can take home, wrap and place under their tree. Annually, more than 100 families look forward to this event, which is made possible through the community's generosity in donating toys for the children and gift cards for their mothers.

If you would like to donate to the Children's Holiday Party this year, please bring unwrapped toys and gift cards to the Office on Women, 421 King Street, Suite 400. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. All donations must be received by Monday, December 15. If you have any questions, please call Shannon McGregor or Stephanie Romonchuk at 703.838.4911.
