Another Successful Event for the Children 

Guests sparkled at the Night Among the Stars Fostering the Future Gala at The Carlyle Club June 19. All proceeds from the event totalling $32,000 will go to The Fund for Alexandria’s Child, helping foster children and others at-risk of abuse and neglect to enjoy the experiences most kids take for granted.  These funds will go directly to the children for athletic uniforms, class trips, music lessons, karate classes, graduation photographs and more. The program has no overhead or administrative costs. 

Major sponsors were Kids Helping Kids/Lemonaide, the Goodhart Group, R & B Heating and Air Conditioning, Hudson Studio, Morgan Stanley/Catherine Joyce, Landmark Honda,  Dominion Dental Services, Ourisman Automotive of VA, Alexandria Roofing, Stone Aesthetic Dentistry, Alexandria Euchre Meet Up Group, Alexandria Hyundai, Burke & Herbert Bank and Trust, Clarke and Sampson Real Estate, Pam Cornelio/McEnearney, McEnearney Associates Old Town, Monument Title, Team Placement Services,  Thar and John Heil, Meagan and Dan Keany, Cathy and Jim Kelley, Suzanne Kratzok and Rick Howard, Mary and Neil Newhouse, and Suellen and Joe Savukas.

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 holidaysharing@alexandriava.gov 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

Our Mission

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.

Advisory Council for The Fund for Alexandria's Child: Council Co-Chairs Allison Goodhart and Thar Roeung  Heil
