In December, it just wouldn’t feel like the holidays without a holiday party, so Safe Places held an annual holiday party complete with Santa and Mrs. Claus, who brought smiles to the kids’ faces. Thanks to Just Clowning Around of Northern Virginia, elves were there painting children’s faces with their favorite cartoon character or animal, too. Of course, Safe Places staff wasn’t about to let the children leave the party empty handed so working again with the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department and Toys 4 Tots out of the U.S. Marine Corps base at Quantico each child was provided with multiple toys from Santa to take home.
