Reston Farm Market Donates 20 Christmas Trees to the FACET’s Next Steps Shelter Families

Reston Farm Market announced today that it will be donating 20 Christmas trees to the FACET’s Next Steps Shelter Families.

FACETS helps families facing homelessness find housing, including through 18 emergency Next Step shelter units, and connects them to life-changing services to help them stabilize their lives.

“We are honored and humbled to share the Christmas spirit with those less fortunate through the FACET’s Next Steps Family Shelter Program - after all, that’s what Christmas is all about,” said Bonita and Lowell Weinstein, owners of the Reston Farm Market.

The donated Christmas trees will be delivered to the three community centers that FACETS operates that are located in affordable housing communities, including Ragan Oaks in Fairfax, Wedgewood in Annandale, and Barros Circle in Centerville on December 13th, 2018.

According to the FACET’s media announcement, homelessness is a real problem in the Fairfax County-Falls Church community. A majority of the people who are a homeless are in working families with children. With critical help from volunteers and partnerships with the faith and business communities, FACETS works to prevent and end homelessness throughout Fairfax County.

Reston Easter Traditions

The tradition of decorating eggs for Easter dates back to at least the 13th century. To this day, Easter egg hunts and egg rolling are two popular Easter traditions we are all well familiar with. After all, the egg is an ancient symbol of new life.

The Easter Bunny is said to be brought back to America in the 1700s by German immigrants. Their Easter morning tradition of a colored egg laying hare spread across the U.S., eventually evolving into what we all recognize as an Easter Bunny delivered morning eggs filled with chocolate, candy, and gifts. Kids love it! 

Traditional Easter floral is fresh spring flowers such as yellow daffodils, stunning hyacinths, colorful tulips, Easter lilies, or pansies. At the Reston Farm Market, VA, we have them all! Thus, while you are getting your home ready for Easter, stop by the Reston Farm Market and Garden Center today and pick some spring joy for your home. 

Happy Easter!
