Helping Local Families With Food For The Holidays

The YFT Holiday Outreach Mission is to help provide food for the Thanksgiving holiday to families in need of food assistance.

Holiday Food Drive

Please consider supporting the food drive with a donation. Any amount is welcome.

  • $69 will sponsor a family for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings.

  • $20 will provide a turkey 

  • $10 will sponsor a pie

If you have ever wanted to "do something" but don't know how to help, here is your chance. As they say "hunger has a cure". It is easy.  Let’s feed the kids! 

Through our work within our local communities we serve many families in need. These are families in Prince William, Fairfax, Loudoun and Fauquier counties that we serve through our Outpatient Counseling, Therapeutic Day Treatment programs in Prince William, Fairfax amd Loudoun County schools and former YFT residents to name a few.  A significant number of these children and families are in need of our help and with food assistance.  In 2018, YFT is providing services in 51 public schools.

Our goal is to deliver food for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays so that all of our YFT families will have food on their tables. 

For more information contact Jenna Jacoby at  or 703-659-9890 or Laura Cotterman at or 703-659-6728.

We are committed to serving many families this year. The need is great!

Whatsoever you do for the least of mine, brothers & sisters,
you do for Me.  (Matthew 25:40)
