• Donations Needed this Holiday Season

        The holidays are jam packed with all night long baking sessions, endless parties, and fast, furious shopping excursions. But for some, the holidays serve as a painful reminder of what once was and hardships. Thankfully, there is hope! The Loudoun County “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” Community Holiday Coalition is collecting donations to help over 1,750 families in need this holiday season.

        The program runs from Saturday, December 4th until Saturday, December 18th and donations can be given during this time. However, the Coalition hopes to have a substantial amount of donations by the December 4th start date so if possible, give early! Items that are desired include: new clothing for children of all ages, gifts for teens and adults, and gift cards to places such as Walmart, Target, etc. Cash donations are always welcome and will be used by the volunteers to purchase gifts that are still in demand.

        A Holiday Store is set up in rented space in Sterling and volunteers help the families who are in need shop the store and allow them to make their own gift selections. The Coalition encourages you to stop by with your donations and see all the magic in action!

        So when you are on your next shopping trip, think about picking up a little extra something to help one of your Loudoun County neighbors in need. In this economic time of uncertainty, you never know who may need your help!
