City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation Adopts over 30 Families for the Holidays

Special thank you to National Asphalt

The City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation Department’s Sherwood Giving Tree sponsored 33 City of Fairfax families in need this holiday season, serving over 100 people. With a generous donation from National Asphalt and working with the parent liaisons from Daniels Run ES, Providence ES and Lanier MS, the Fairfax City Parks and Rec Department delivered wrapped toys, clothes and supplied gift cards to city families.

The Sherwood Giving Tree was decorated with holiday “wishes” which were fulfilled by City of Fairfax departments, neighborhood, businesses and individuals. Sponsors could fill individual wishes or an entire family. The City of Fairfax School Board and staff sponsored a family and provided toys, clothes and gift cards for a holiday meal. With such a success in its first year, the department plans to expand the program next year.
