NVFS & Barnes & Noble Fairfax Form Partnership to Help Underserved Area Children

(Fairfax, Va., November 1, 2013) – Northern Virginia Family Service and Barnes & Noble Fairfax are partnering together for the first time this year to ensure that NVFS’ Head Start students and children of families who turn to NVFS for emergency assistance receive books for the holiday season

The partnership between the retail bookstore and the non-profit organization will ensure that local low-income children have gifts to open as they celebrate the holiday season.


From now through January 1, 2014, Customers entering Barnes and Noble Fairfax will be given the option upon checkout of donating a book to a child in an NVFS program. All books collected will be given to underserved children through the agency’s “Gifting for Families” program. The Book Drive for Northern Virginia Family Service is underway at the Fairfax Barnes and Noble store in the Fair Lakes Promenade Shopping Center at the Corner of Monument and Fair Lakes Parkway.
