To all Holiday Sharing friends
Our hearts are full of gratitude and holiday cheer, even as the year’s first snow melts all around us. We are sure that the donors, volunteers and recipients during next week’s distribution of gifts will share their joy, even in these tough times.
And so, 2013’s Holiday Sharing Program comes to a close. If you want to make a donation at this time, we continue to need gift cards for teens and grocery cards for seniors and disabled individuals and families. End-of-year donations to The Fund for Alexandria’s Child and the Eleanor Ager Senior Fund, both at the Department of Community and Human Services, would also be appreciated. If you have new, unwrapped toys to donate, we can take them until Friday, December 20.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Thank you, friends, for everything you have done for our recipients and our community.
With all good wishes for the holidays and the New Year,
The DCHS Holiday Sharing Committee
The Fund for Alexandria's Child works to enhance the quality of life of foster children and children at risk of abuse and neglect by promoting community awareness, involvement and resource development. We achieve our mission through providing to the children such activities as dance, art or karate lessons, summer camping, school field trips, scouting and team sports. Because of the generosity of our Alexandria neighbors, we can proudly say that we are a community "taking care of our own."
Who We Are
The Fund for Alexandria's Child is made up of volunteers, people like you, from all walks of life who want to make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable children in our community. Through family service specialists at the Department of Community & Human Services, we are able to identify children in need and enrich the lives of children in our community who are most at risk. We plan fundraising events, help with the collection and distribution of gifts and other items for the children, and offer our expertise to fulfill our charge: helping Alexandria's foster children and those at risk of experiencing abuse and neglect.
