Our Neighbors Child
Our Neighbors Child (ONC) is a non-profit, community-based organization, which began in 1992 by providing holiday gifts for children in low-income families in western Fairfax County. Over the years, as western Fairfax has grown, Our Neighbor's Child has grown as well; what began as an endeavor of a few friends helping several dozen children has grown to a network of more than 400 community volunteers that served over 2,000 children in the Centreville, Chantilly, Clifton, and Fairfax areas.
