Donations Update in Response to the May 2 Centreville Fires

Posted at 4:55 p.m.

Fairfax County thanks our community and partners for their generous contributions to support our neighbors affected by the fires in Centerville on Wednesday, May 2. The response has been great.

As we continue to assess the needs of the residents, which will guide our donation efforts moving forward, we have identified two additional needs.

Monetary Donations

While gift cards continue to be a great resource, cash will work best for addressing housing needs, including application costs, deposits, rent, etc. Please consider designating a cash donation to Western Fairfax Christian Ministries, the organization taking the lead to work directly with the county and the affected residents, for this immediate need.

You can mail or drop off donations to Western Fairfax Christian Ministries (WFCM), 4511 Daly Drive, Suite J, Chantilly, Va. WFCM can receive donations in person from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.

WFCM is also accepting online cash donations at wfcmva.org (click the donate button)

For additional information, call 703-988-9656 or email rkolowe@wfcmva.org.

Housing

Long-term affordable housing options for those displaced by the fire, particularly our older adult residents, is a primary focus right now. We are looking for tax-credit affordability level and accessibility (ADA) among other criteria.

For offers or information on housing criteria, contact Elisa Johnson with the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development at 703-279-7302, TTY 711.
