Countdown to Christmas

Children in INMED’s after-school program celebrated the Opportunity Center’s second anniversary this month by trimming the Christmas “opportunity” tree in the front lobby, as dreams of an early Christmas danced in their heads. The tree trimmers were not disappointed. The following day, two of Santa’s elves from TEGNA, Inc. (a spin-off of Gannett Co., Inc.) appeared with gifts collected by TEGNA employees for a family enrolled in INMED’s homelessness prevention program. Other gifts from generous Loudoun residents have been arriving at the center in preparation for INMED’s annual family Christmas party on December 16.

INMED gratefully accepts gifts for its families during the holidays, as well as year-round gifts in the form of volunteers, donations and other support. For more information, please contact Center Director Maria Vasquez at or visit
