In August 2015 again we Shared-A-Haircut! During the first two weeks of August (1st-15th), every time a child, up to age 18, purchased a haircut at Hair Cuttery, Hair Cuttery donated a free haircut certificate to a child in need. As a result Northern Virginia Assistance League distributed 400 coupons in September to needy children in schools across Northern VA including Manassas, Reston, Springfield, Falls Church, and Fairfax to be used before November 18th this year.

Thank you for sharing this information with your friends, neighbors and family and supporting Share-A Haircut.

2015 Spring Luncheon held April 24th

It was a wonderful Spring Luncheon! Thank you to all of our members and our many generous guests who joined us on April 24, 2015 at the International Golf and Country Club to celebrate ten years of serving those at risk in our community. Your generosity will make it possible for Assistance League of Northern Virginia to continue to help so many children who are in need of food, clothing or a boost toward literacy. A big thank you to all those who helped make our luncheon such a success.

109 attendees enjoyed the informative feature presentation by the Fairfax International Urban Search and Rescue Task Force. They are recognized throughout the world as a premier leader for the provision of training in catastropic event mitigation, readiness, and response and recovery techniques. Two days after our luncheon this organization deployed to the international disaster in Nepal, where they were part of the team rescuing a 13-year old boy who had been trapped in the earthquake rubble for 5 days.

2013 White House Ornament

2013_WHO_2013.jpg

 

The 2013 White House Christmas ornament honors Woodrow Wilson, the twenty-eighth president of the United States. The years of Wilson's two terms in office, from 1913 to 1921, are defined by the unprecedented devastation of World War I, yet Wilson himself would be awarded the Nobel Peace prize in 1919. It was President Wilson's extraordinary quest for a lasting world peace that inspired the design of our ornament.
