Hi from Jenny - Your Weekly Rundown

in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford, VA

By Jenny Sites January 14, 2021


Typically I like to keep the newsletter light and fun - after all, Family Fun is our motto - but when another mom told us about her child mentioning suicide, I decided I needed to share her story in case there are other parents out that who need to know the signs, or how to they can help their child.  You can read her story here.

I've also hear a lot of people in the community who are struggling to make ends make. They need food and don't know where to go to get help. If you need help or know someone who does, or if you'd like to donate - get more information on our local food bank here.  You can find other local resources to get help here or to give help here.

You can also find ways to cut your energy costs here.
