Like you, we are closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus in our region. Many of us are making sure we have extra necessities. However, many of our neighbors cannot afford to buy extra food, stock up on medication, purchase additional cleaning supplies, or make ends meet in the event they are unable to work.
We all must act now to protect those likely to be the most adversely affected in the event it escalates and becomes increasingly difficult for NVFS to deliver services and supplies.
How you can help a family prepare:
Donate Food, Goods, Grocery Gift Cards, or Funds
Drop-Off Location: NVFS SERVE Campus, 10056 Dean Dr, Manassas, VA 20110
To minimize person to person contact, please consider mailing donations to: NVFS Headquarters, 10455 White Granite Drive #100, Oakton, VA 22124
- Shelf-stable canned goods
- Household Cleaning supplies (Clorox wipes, Lysol, rubbing alcohol)
- Antibacterial soap
- Grocery Gift Cards
You can also purchase items through our Amazon Wish List. On the shipping address page, select NVFS HQ—this will ship it to our Oakton office. On the gift message, please include your name & address so we can properly acknowledge your generous donation.
NVFS is closely following the guidance of our local and state health departments as well as city and county governments across the region. We have set-up a webpage we will update regularly as new information becomes available.
At the same time, we are working on longer-term strategies and planning. We are still early in this process and have innumerable considerations still in front us as we prioritize the health, safety and well-being of our employees, volunteers, and clients, while balancing the reality that we are in the midst of a public health crisis and need to respond accordingly.
We are confident the Northern Virginia community is strong, and our network of partner organizations, health services, businesses, donors and supporters will come together as in past crises and ensure impact on our neighbors is mitigated as much as possible.
Please take care of yourselves and those close to you.
