It All Adds Up...

Recently OP3 was honored by Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services for our work on partnerships that benefit NCS customers. On May 29th, at our Celebrate Partnerships event, we will honor more than 20 new partners who have either become part of existing partnerships or are part of a new venture. Whether it's a big new venture such as our work with NVCC SySTEMic or a smaller effort to help the Starbucks participate in Collect for Kids and Jeans Day, the work adds up to benefits for Fairfax County residents. So whether you have a lot to give or just a little, whether its time or money, keep an eye out for ways to Give and Get Involved -- it all adds up!


Gartlan Center and ANSHI Team Up

Recently, a unique and successful partnership was formed when Neighborhood Health Services, formerly known as Alexandria Neighborhood Health Services, Inc., began offering primary health care services one day per week at the Community Services Board's Gartlan Center. By marrying up primary health care with Gartlan's existing behavioral health services and the existing QoL Pharmacy, this partnership provides for "one stop health care" for both mental and physical needs.

Amphora Diner


If the fastest way to your heart is through your stomach -- Amphora Group has touched the hearts of many Fairfax Residents.

Amphora Bakery is the proud founder of "CAKES AGAINST CANCER" which creates and delivers whimsical cakes to children undergoing treatment for cancer in local hospitals and care centers, and organizes bakery themed workshops with the children such as holiday gingerbread decorating and cake decorating. Amphora is also a key benefactor in "CHEFS IN THE CITY", a premier culinary fundraising event benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The catering division, Amphora Catering is an original sponsor of the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund gala honoring the families and memory of fallen officers, and the Meant 2 Live Foundation, supporting the futures of impoverished children locally and in Zambia, Africa.
