Do you have a little extra to give this holiday season?

Operation Santa
Operation Santa Adopt A Senior and Operation Adopt A Special Need Adult are programs of Families4Fauquier to help provide a small little Christmas for our local area citizens that are often alone or forgotten during the holidays.
We will be providing our sponsored individuals each with a stocking of goodies, a small gift card, and small gifts from their wish list. We are seeking families in our community to help us make this a success by sponsoring this holiday season. All gifts are due back to Families4Fauquier on or before December 10th. Once all gifts have been collected Families4Fauquier will be hosting a small Christmas celebration to deliver gifts with our Mascot the Fauquier Fox along with Santa!  

Hero’s Project
This is Families4Fauquier’s annual Hero’s Project to benefit Walter Reed Medical Facility. We will build special treat bags with candy, chapstick, handmade Christmas ornaments and inspirational messages for our military Heroes and their family members. Groups, clubs, families, and individuals are welcome to participate. The more participants we have the more Heroes we will be able to send well wishes and holiday cheer to this Christmas season.

We are collecting the following NEW personal care items:

  • Fleece blankets /throws
  • Handmade blankets
  • Chapstick
  • Wrapped candy
  • Gum
  • Soap
  • Tooth brushes
  • Tooth paste
  • Wash clothes
  • Sponges
  • Nail files
  • Nail clippers (sealed)
  • Snack foods
  • White t-shirts  

We are also looking for families and groups to help make handmade Christmas ornaments for our Military HERO’S Project. Decorated or undecorated salt dough ornaments or any creative ornaments are greatly appreciated. This is a huge project and we need lots of help to ensure each bag has a handmade ornament. We are actively collecting homemade Christmas or get well ornaments year round. Let us know if you need the salt dough recipe.
