Annual Toy Drive supporting Holiday Sharing: Since 2013, Volunteer Alexandria supports the Holiday Sharing Program implemented by the Department of Community and Human Services’ Fund for Alexandria’s Children by hosting an Annual Community Toy Drive. The Toy Drive has provided toys, games, and books to hundreds of families who just need some extra assistance. Due to COVID, we are focusing on infants and toddlers, 3 years old and under for ALL 183 families. Our goal is to provide two toys and two books per child serving 211 children total.
