For many of our neighbors in need, 2017 has been a year of uncertainty and anxiety concerning their ability to pay for food, rent, child care, gas and electric, furniture, or medicine. Yet, for over fifty years, those living in Annandale, Bailey's Crossroads, and Lincolnia areas of Fairfax County have been able to turn to the Annandale Christian Community for Action (ACCA) for help. In fact, over the past year, we assisted approximately 5,600 people in our service area.
ACCA needs your support to continue our work in the coming year. Our goal for this year's Challenge Campaign is to raise $120,000 in donations between now and January 31, 2018.
How do you know that donations will directly help needy neighbors? In June, ACCA was recognized again as "one of the best small nonprofits in the DC Metro region" by the Catalogue for Philanthropy. Moreover, Fairfax County has invited ACCA to expand its childcare program, so that the number of low-income children served can increase from 185 to over 220 children in the coming year.
To donate by mail, send your check payable to ACCA to 7200 Columbia Pike, Annandale, VA 22003. Please note "Challenge Campaign" in the memo line. You can donate with credit or debit card online via the Catalogue for Philanthropy or PayPal. See details on the ACCA website.
Thank you for supporting ACCA to help those in need in our community. Your contribution WILL make a difference!
