2019 Foster Teen Gift Drive
It’s time again for our annual Foster Teen Gift Drive!
There are hundreds of teens under the authority of the Fairfax County Department of Social Services. Last year, thanks to your generosity, we were able to donate gifts valuing more than $30,000.
The county social workers have asked the foster teens what they’d like for the holidays if a willing donor could be located. This is where you can help. The foster teens have made wish lists. You may accept either a foster teen’s entire wish list or a portion depending on your budget.
Foster teens are much more likely to be in a county run group home. Sooner than later, foster teens will be facing emancipation. They’ll have to get through post-high school educations on their own. It’s so easy to provide a gift card that will help fund tablets, winter clothes, school team sports equipment, etc.
Birthday and graduation gifts are also being covered for the foster teens through these sponsorships. No other group is going this far for these teens, so you could make their entire year.
Special thanks to our honorary Gift Drive Chairs, Senator Mark Warner and Fairfax County Chairman Sharon Bulova!
