FOANB is a public charity exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All donations are tax deductible. Our purpose is to assist the residents of A New Beginning with personal needs such as clothing, toiletries, medications, emergency dental work, etc. In addition we help purchase recreational equipment, arts and crafts supplies, graduation gifts and other items not provided by Fairfax County.
There are many ways to help FOANB – all are welcome to participate in our Board meetings or assist with event planning and execution. We need your help! We hold a monthly Board meeting (1st Saturday of every month at 9:00 am in the gym). We also try to hold at least one fundraiser or fun event each month. Being a part of FOANB is extremely rewarding.
In April we will begin accepting donations for our annual yard sale in May. A great time to clean out your closets, garages, and attics and donate your unwanted items to us!
FOANB is in it’s 10th year as a non-profit and we need help to keep going. Whether you donate time, money or just come out to support our events, your contribution is needed. The most important thing about FOANB is that we try to show the clients that there is fun in recovery!! Through our dances, car washes, yard sale, game nights, and open mic nights we help the clients meet other members of the recovery community and start building a support network before they even leave treatment.
