This holiday season, Fairfax County Police Department’s Victim Services is raising donations for children of victims involved in violent crimes.
Victim Services at FCPD supports victims’ families in many ways, according to Supervisor of Hunter Mill District Walter Alcorn. This holiday season, the division will be working to eliminate some of the financial hardship for some families.
“The Fairfax County Police Department’s Victim Services Division provides critical services to child victims and witnesses of domestic and sexual violence,” Alcorn wrote in a recent newsletter.” Many of these children will not get to celebrate holidays this year due to the financial burden that comes with being a victim of crime.”
FCPD is accepting gift cards from stores for children of all ages, Alcorn says, from stores including:
- TJ Maxx
- Local restaurants
- Other clothing stores
Gift cards can be dropped off at the Reston District Police Station (1801 Cameron Glen Drive) or mailed to the station addressed as:
C/O Victim Services/ PFC Horita
Reston District Police Station
1801 Cameron Glen Drive
Reston, VA 20190
