Success! Record Breaking Holiday Donation Drive

thank_you_wordleYou outdid yourselves this time! Our previous weeklong fundraising record was $2,690 for The Art League's SOHO mentoring program in October.

Thanks to your amazing holiday-inspired community spirit, we helped raise a total of $2,785 for Community Partners for Children's Holiday Donation Drive. This year, the need was greater than ever with more than 350 families needing assistance through the City's Holiday Sharing Program.

The response to our call for help was overwhelming.  We met our $1,000 goal on the first day, and met our new $2,000 goal a few days later. Added to the $500 match from the RunningBrooke Fund, all of that means that more than 650 childen in Alexandria will experience the joy of unwrapping presents this holiday season.

Thanks Alexandria!
