Valentine's Day Project

Valentine's Day Project Details » Donate Online

The FBA Paralegal Section, in conjunction with the Fairfax Law Foundation, welcomes your contributions to the Annual Valentine's Day Project, which benefits the residents of the Fairfax Girls' and Boys' Probation Houses.

 If you are not already familiar with this worthwhile project, each year in February, we purchase new books (hard and paperback), as well as journals, toiletries, and personal items for 12 young women and 22 young men residing in the Fairfax County Boys' and Girls' Probation Houses. As described by Kim Sykes of the Boys' Probation Home, "Providing our residents with books of their own, for many of them it's the first real books they've owned, on Valentine's Day brings them (and the staff) such joy. Although they are here for getting in trouble with the law a few too many times, there are always underlying issues and have the opportunity to work on and address while they are here. For many of them, it is a very stressful time, as they are dealing with family, grief, or substance abuse issues. It is nice to have books they have chosen, to be able to read for pleasure and relaxation."
