Holiday Program

Share holiday hope and help with Fairfax County area children and families who may otherwise go without a festive meal or a gift.

This fall, we are seeking donations of funds and gift cards so that we can give gift cards to local families with identified need to help them purchase food for their Thanksgiving and December holiday meals, and gifts for their children in December. Sponsorships by companies and organizations are also greatly welcome.

$100 will help a family with a meal and small gifts for their children. Any amount you can donate will make a big difference for a family near you.

“I'd like to thank you for the Thanksgiving gift card I receive from my school that came from you. God bless you. I have not been working because just a few weeks ago I had my baby. The gift card will be very helpful.” – 2022 Holiday assistance recipient
