Annandale Christian Community for Action (ACCA)
WISH LIST: $100: prescription drugs for a single mother with no health insurance; $200: 1-week supply of food and hygiene essentials for 1 family; $1000: 1 family's back rent to avoid eviction
Helping the neediest and most vulnerable among us, ACCA offers, without regard to religious affiliation, critical assistance in emergencies: financial aid for rent and security deposits, gasoline and car repairs, utility bills, prescription drugs, medical and dental care; nutritious food and hygiene products; "gently used" furniture; transportation to medical appointments; meals on wheels for elderly shut-ins -- the most basic, fundamental aid imaginable. At the same time, ACCA's Child Development Center provides affordable day care, early education, and special services annually for almost 300 infants and children from low-income households, the kind of help that gives families a healthy start in life. ACCA has grown to include 26 congregations in sections of Fairfax County where many low-income and immigrant families reside; emergency programs are managed and supported by church and neighborhood volunteers who work from their homes, offices, and cars, providing thousands of hours of service each month. A 50% increase in referrals, and clients whose needs have only grown, means that your generosity matters now more than ever.
