The Reading Connection is dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children and families by helping them create and sustain literacy-rich environments and motivation for reading. Research has shown that reading aloud to children "is the single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading". We were introduced to Reading Connection by one our clients and are now vigorous supporters for the entire organization.
Arlington Free Clinic provides free, high-quality medical care to low-income, uninsured Arlington County through private donations and volunteers. Patients have access to a full range of medical services that are provided on-site within our primary care setting. We are happy to be a proud supporter of Arlington Free Clinic.
Each holiday season, volunteers come together to make sure that Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless families receive holiday gifts. Jan and George DeFalco sponsor a family every year and provide gifts of clothing, toys and school supplies for members of all ages.
