BENEFITING: NORTHERN VIRGINIA FAMILY SERVICE
The 37 foster families of Northern Virginia Family Service don't seek recognition for loving the children in their care. They are rewarded by seeing the children heal and grow. But that doesn't mean we can't honor them anyway.
I've organized The Fostering Foster Families Fundraiser to show these foster families how much the community appreciates all they do. I want each family to be able to treat themselves to a very nice dinner or fun family activity. Some of the families have as many as six well-cared-for children so, to ensure every family is able to enjoy themselves fully, we need to raise at least $3000. This donation is tax-deductible.
In addition to giving each family a day of fun, your donation helps recruit and retain these incredible parents.
My stretch goal of $5000 will benefit the additional programs NVFS offers to support all family needs, from housing to medical care to training and employment.
If you can't afford a financial donation, don't worry, there are other ways you can show your support:
- Share this information with your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors and other community members. If 300 people each donate only $10, we will easily meet our goal
- Check out the other ways you can give back to NVFS
- Promote the invaluable services of NVFS
