This event was fabulous, with hundreds of volunteers doing important work to benefit all sorts of worthy local causes. Our project to assemble New Baby Welcome Baskets for Healthy Families Alexandria (HFA), a Giving Circle priority gift recipient, and the Alexandria Department of Health Field Nurses was a smashing success! Check out the photos on our website.
Our goal was create 100 New Baby Welcome Baskets, yet we collected goods for and assembled 150! I am grateful to all of you for donating your time, talent, supplies, and cash to this project. Healthy Families Alexandria and the Field Nurses are so pleased to have their very bare storerooms restocked…and at-risk new mothers who receive these valuable parcels will appreciate this thoughtful helping hand.
Again, thank you so very much for supporting new parents, HFA, the Field Nurses, the Giving Circle of Alexandria, and me!
All the best,
Spring cleaning? Please keep in mind that Healthy Families Alexandria will happily accept your donations of new and used winter coats (adults and children 0-5 years), clothing (maternity and children 0-5 years), towels and bedding (sheets, blankets, comforters and pillows), port-a-cribs and regular cribs and strollers at their office at 5249 Duke Street (just past the Beatley Library).
