This time of year, we all enjoy spending time with our families and reflecting on the joys of the past year. At the Paxton Trust, we are grateful for the time we have spent building a stronger community so that EVERY child may thrive in Loudoun County!

With your support, our initiatives “Kids in Business” and “What’s Your Word” build brighter futures by empowering at-risk teens. We provide stability and safety to the children living in the emergency homeless shelter during the summer months by partnering with the Loudoun YMCA to send every kid to camp. Our emergency fund provides shoes, school supplies, hygiene kits, and clothing, to make sure the children in our community have the basic necessities. Our #Socktober cold weather clothing drive strives to keep every child in Loudoun warm and dry this winter.

Building community, we partner with 31 other organizations – like Mobile Hope, helping children who are homeless; and we work with Backpack Buddies, making sure no child goes to bed hungry. We provide educational opportunities with INMED Opportunity Center and Educando con Amor so that every child has the chance of a bright future.

We served over 1,200 children throughout Loudoun BECAUSE OF YOU! Together, our children can TRUST that our community is here for each of them. Thank you for making Loudoun County a better place for ALL of our children! Best wishes for the New Year!
