Holiday Gifts for Local Children

Want to join us in making a difference? We're raising funds to benefit the Herndon-Reston FISH Holiday Food & Gift Program for families in need. Any donation will help make a valuable impact! Please read on for more information about this program. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and contribution to this cause that means so much to us and our neighbors!
 
We need your help! The Coronavirus Pandemic has affected how we will provide holiday food and gift assistance this year. During the winter holidays, Herndon-Reston (FISH) provides caring support to disadvantaged families. This assistance hopefully reduces stress, lessens financial pressures, and promotes holiday cheer for those facing financial difficulties. Typically, FISH provides non-perishable food, a grocery card for fresh food, toys for kids, and gift cards for teens. BUT for the 2021 holidays we are having to change our program due to the pandemic.
 
Here’s how you can help: Due to the effects of COVID-19 and social distancing over the past 18 months, we will not be able to provide the in-person distribution of non-perishable food or toys this year. Instead we plan to provide each family referred to us with $50-$75 in grocery gift cards plus a $25 Target gift card for each child (18 years old and under). We depend on neighbors, like you, to help us fund this effort!
 
Please help Herndon-Reston FISH prepare for the busy holiday season by giving back to those less fortunate and those families affected by the coronavirus. Last year, FISH assisted about 250 households, over 900 people, including more than 400 children! We would like to assist as many people, if not more for the 2021 holidays, because many are still without jobs or incomes and struggling because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
You can easily help now by sponsoring $25 gift cards for children and teens. This is a great opportunity for you to make a student smile with your kindness and generous spirits. Just imagine the smiles on their faces. As little as a $100 donation will provide four children with one or two gifts for the holidays.
