ECW Christmas Giving Table

Through December 11, 2020

GiftIt’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and time for the Church of the Holy Comforter (CHC) Christmas Giving Table. Unfortunately, there will not be an actual table, BUT we can still share our many blessings with the community around us.

We are supporting the same five charities we’ve helped in past:

Here’s what you need to know:

With the exception of Second Story, charities are only able to accept monetary donations. In addition, gift card suggestions are $15–$25 for:

  • Walmart
  • Target
  • Uber
  • (NOVA-HTI also likes Aldi and other grocery stores.)

Donations can be made a few different ways:

  • Online via the Holy Comforter website HERE. Select "ECW Christmas Giving Table" from the Fund dropdown menu. Please specify the charity on the memo line.
  • Mail checks to Holy Comforter. Checks can be made payable to (a) the charity of choice or (b) Church of the Holy Comforter with “Giving Table - general” or “Giving Table - specify charity“ in the memo line.
  • Drop off gift cards, cash or checks in the Church Office during business hours: M–F; 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Do not mail gift cards or cash. Please make sure dollar amounts are visible on each gift card.
  • Please contact Aimee Davis regarding donations for Second Story. More information and a gift signup is available online HERE.


  • Committee for Helping Others (CHO) is Friday, November 27 because they distribute gifts on December 5. (The CHO will except gift cards after November 27 for those who couldn’t make it to their Christmas store on December 5.)
  • The deadline for all others is Friday, December 11.

Donations should be in a sealed envelope and placed in the Holy Comforter Church Office drop box. Envelopes will be available at the drop box. Feel free to put a note inside with clear instructions or write the charity of choice on the envelope.

If you have questions, please contact Chris Doyle at 703-403-1634 or 703-255-6135. If you have Second Story questions, please contact Aimee Davis.
