“When you are truly sharing with no expectation of your kindness being returned, it doesn’t matter whether you get credit. In fact, it’s better if you don’t. Your spirit is expanded by anonymous generosity.” – Anonymous
When the first leaf falls, it is time to think about Holiday Sharing. The holiday season is a joyous occasion filled with excitement and anticipation. For many though, the holidays are a very stressful time of year due to financial hardship. There is a tremendous need in our community to help those less fortunate.
Please reach out to those with the greatest need in the community by joining our program to Sponsor a Family, Senior Citizen or Person with a Disability, Foster Child or Foster Teen, and to participate in the Alexandria Community Toy Drive. You can help with your TIME by volunteering or with your RESOURCES by sponsoring and donating gifts.
Because many families will sign up for your help, we will focus primarily on family requests for necessities for children and a few toys. This will allow more donors to contribute desperately needed grocery store gift cards and clothing. We hope, if you are able, that you will increase the number of families and seniors that you sponsor. There may also be one major or family gift requested that the whole family can enjoy. If you can fulfill that wish, it would be a wonderful bonus for the family.
We strongly urge you to use our websites to sign up for your desired activities. Sign up for sponsorships (through Nov 30) or sign up to volunteer (through Dec 22).

Donations for Holiday Sharing are accepted until Dec 22.
Monetary donations can be made online via credit card (AE, VISA, MC, DISCOVER).
Make donation checks payable to The Fund for Alexandria’s Child, or to the DCHS Senior Fund and mail to:
