The Valentines Challenge is dedicated to supporting the mission of Great Expectations, Fairfax County Foster Care, and Foster Care to Success – three nonprofit organizations that meet the needs of hundreds of children who are in foster care or under child protective services.

Volunteer Fairfax helps to provide encouragement to local youth through its Valentine’s Challenge.  Hundreds of volunteers spend most of a full day lovingly creating more than 6000 Valentine’s Day cards in the hopes of providing a kind and encouraging message to these at-risk children.   In addition to the hand-crafted cards, special care packages containing sweet treats, scarves, and notes will be shared with the children.
