OLGC's Joy of Christmas Giving

The December Monthly Outreach Drive has been rebranded and is now called OLGC’s Joy of Christmas Giving. We have combined the Adopt-A-Family and Giving Tree programs into one so we are able to support our local community in a more meaningful way. Please open your hearts and help others to experience the joy of the season!

Gift giving to families (formerly Adopt-A-Family): 
Families are referred to the program by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Vienna Public Schools, and OLGC families. If you would like to adopt a family by yourself or team up with friends, co-workers, or parish groups, contact Fran Davenport at 703.242.7440, Maria Madocks at 703.319.0010, or via email at olgcchristmasgiving@gmail.com to receive a family.
