Review for The Child & Family Network Centers, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first learned about CFNC through my church during Christmas when I participated in an Adopt-A-Family program that paired members of the church with children and their families of the center. CFNC had been kind enough to let me know how touched the family was of the gifts I had given.

As the new school year approached the following summer and I saw other charities requesting donations for school supplies I thought maybe CFNC might have a need. I recalled how I made a difference in the life of the one child and her family at Christmas and thought how a similar gift to CFNC could impact the lives of so many more children. So I obtained their school supply wish list and purchased a few of the items. When I arrived at CFNC to deliver the items the staff was so kind and gracious about my gift. Since classes were not back for the fall semester they invited me back for a tour later in the fall, which I later took them up on, and I was able to see for myself the children using the supplies all while learning. Words can not express how exhilarating and rewarding the whole experience was for me.

I was fortunate enough to be able to make a similar gift again this year and once again it was such a rewarding experience.

Who would have thought how something as simple as a box of crayons can change the life of a child?
