It is also supported by donations to the Park Foundation that honor the life of Lt. Col. Gary F. Smith, (pictured) a civilian employee of the Army who, at the time of his death, was attending a meeting at the Pentagon when American Airlines Flight 77 struck.  He spent many seasons coaching girls soccer on numerous Fairfax County parks including Grist Mill Park in Alexandria, home of the LTC Gary F. Smith Field.

Summer Camp Fun for All

Through the very generous donations from the Community Foundation of Northern Virginia, Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, George Preston Marshall Foundation, Let's Help Kids, and V olkswagen and many individual donors, children living in homeless shelters and supportive housing will be attending Fairfax County Park Authority camps this summer. 

Each year the Park Foundation plays a key role in coordinating the efforts of shelter providers, donors and camp organizers.  By working together, we are able to send more  children to summer day camps.   In addition to helping pass the joyous days of summer vacation, campers learn many new experiences that enrich their lives.  
There is still time to make a donation to the PACT program.  A $225 donation will fund one week of a traditional summer camp for one child but all donations are welcomed! Thanks for helping put a smile on a child's face.
