mother_and_sonI don't know about you, but this week's earthquake brought a new level of significance to our Healthy Families Alexandria Home Safety Kit action. There is nothing more important than making your home as safe as possible for your family.  It also made meeting our goal that much sweeter!

Thanks to your donations and a $500 match from the RunningBrooke Fund, Healthy Families Alexandria will be able to help 67 Alexandria families create a safer home environment for their children.  Nanci Pedulla, Program Manager for Healthy Families Alexandria asked me to share her sincerest thanks with you:

“Healthy Families Alexandria is grateful for the tremendous support we received through the ACTion Alexandria Action this week! Thanks to our generous donors, we will be able to provide over 60 families with Home Safety Kits – an essential tool to creating a safe learning environment for young children.   We are particularly indebted to Brooke Curran and the RunningBrooke Fund whose matching grant of $500 enabled us to double our efforts to keep children safe.  On behalf of all Healthy Families Alexandria participants and staff, thank you!”

To put the impact ACTion Alexandria is having on the community in perspective, I've summarized the results of our actions since our launch on February 7th.
