Western Fairfax Christian Ministries (WFCM) Food Pantry, Chantilly, VA

WFCM is a “choice model” pantry enabling clients to come into the food pantry and “shop” as they would at a grocery store, picking their own selections from the shelves. Products include non-perishable items such as canned goods, breads, produce, meat, and dairy products. In addition to food items they also carry baby-specific items such as diapers and baby food for those who have infants, and toiletries.

Clients visiting the pantry once per month helps them save money to pay for other expenses such as rent or utility bills.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of the Pikes Peak Region

More than 1,000 children need your help to bring joy to their holidays this year. That’s a lot of stockings to fill, so we’re asking you to join our annual Holiday Toy Drive. For children spending the holidays in foster care away from their family, receiving the special gift they have wished for means a lot.
