FAUQUIER KIDS CHRISTMAS PROJECT
In 2016, principal broker of Ross Real Estate Tyler Ross and Profecta Marketing founder Lindsey Forsten were inspired by the PATH Foundation's campaign, 12 Days of Kindness. The campaign encouraged the pay-it-forward principle of doing something nice for others. So with a little collaboration and holiday magic, Tyler and Lindsey came up with a plan to spread Christmas cheer to the children of the Boys and Girls Club of Fauquier. After last year’s success, they have decided to make this an annual tradition, involving the community to give these children a Christmas to remember!
On December 19, we are bringing the North Pole to the Boys and Girls Club, and GumDrop Square and the Fauquier Community Theatre have generously offered to lend a hand in bringing the vision to life! Santa's elves (volunteers, Fauquier deputies and Warrenton police) will be working diligently in Santa's workshop with the children preparing for Christmas at different stations (i.e. snowball throwing, Christmas-wrapping competitions, building gingerbread houses, etc.). Each child will have the chance to share wish lists with Santa.
In addition to building the North Pole, just one day of fun, we recognize the Boys and Girls Club has many ongoing needs. With help from the community, we can help them purchase items to continue making the club a wonderful place for the children to come spend time after school.
