'Tis the Season. Please Donate Today. Act Now!

The Fund for Alexandria's Child needs your help this Holiday Season. Its looking for donors to provide gifts for low income families, foster children, senior citizens or persons with disabilities through the Holiday Sharing Program.

After you've signed up to participate in the Holiday Sharing, you will receive the wish lists for the participants. Most will include donations of clothing such as a coat or jeans, a toy or recreational item, a book, and perhaps one family request such as a used computer, towels or pots and pans. You can also donate gift cards for teens in foster care (Old Navy, Target, Walmart, Best Buy, etc.) and grocery cards for families or seniors.


Your donations can be delivered to the homes of families or seniors or brought to 2525 Mount Vernon Avenue on the mornings of December 13th, 14th or 15th. Volunteers are also needed for family gift distribution, please report to 2525 Mount Vernon Avenue, on December 12th, 13th and 14th for shifts from 8:45AM to 7:30PM when the donors bring in their gift bundles and the families pick them up.


Please click the Take Action button below to sign-up. You will receive a confirmation email with instructions and an email containing the wish list. The value of your contribution is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Call 703-746-5663 with questions, and please call if you register and do not hear back by December 5th.
