This Week: Help 650 Alexandria Children Get A New Toy For The Holidays

End Date: Sun, 12/11/2011 - 11:59pm
Donate $20 to help a child in need this holiday season!
Thanks to the amazing response, we met our $1,000 goal on the first day. So we've doubled our goal to $2,000.

Rose, 64, is up early in the morning to see her three grandchildren Tammy (6), Davis (4), and Mike (2) off to school. Most evenings Rose feels well enough to cook dinner, but it's hard for a single grandparent on disability to care for her three grandchildren. For families like Rose's, every holiday season it’s a scramble to provide a memorable Christmas for her grandchildren, but you can help!

This week, help Community Partners for Children raise $1,000 to help provide new toys to 650 children in need in Alexandria this holiday season.

Since 1991, Community Partners for Children has worked with Alexandria’s Holiday Sharing program to help 8,000 children in need through their annual Holiday Donation Drive.  This year, 350 families (650 children) need assistance providing holiday gifts for thier children. Families receive a special invitation to attend CPC’s Distribution Day. A local recreation center is transformed in a winter wonderland and children are entertained with fun activities while their parents choose gifts for them.

Please donate $20 or more to help us reach our goal of $1,000 for Community Partners for Children's Holiday Donation Drive!
