Community

Community

We’re proud to call northern Virginia home. Our neighbors throughout the Centreville, Virginia and Washington, D.C. region are an integral part of our farm’s success, so we’ve established initiatives to give back to the community that has supported us through the decades.

In The Community

Every day we take pause to appreciate the diversity and energy unique to the region. We also understand the challenges many families, schools and organizations face. We have seen generations grow alongside us, and we consider helping our neighbors an important responsibility that we take seriously. Through partnerships and our cultivated community initiatives, we hope to provide local families and organizations with resources and activities that lead to healthier, happier communities, from the Washington Monument to our Hayride Start and beyond.

Community Initiatives

In 2011, Cox Farms started a campaign to "adopt a family" in need by agreeing to match any donation made in lieu of tips during the winter season. Our Holiday Donation campaign quickly transformed into a major initiative, with more than $65,000 donated to local organizations, such as Britepaths and Northern Virginia Family Services since 2011.

Our Free and Reduced Admission Initiative provides kids with the opportunity to attend our highly anticipated Fall Festival.

Cox Farms currently accepts requests for discounted and free admission and donations from eligible groups across the Washington, D.C., area.

Partnerships

Westfield High School

Westfield High School

When Westfield High School opened in 2000, Cox Farms began its partnership with the local school by providing product donations and supporting school publications. We're proud to have a formal partnership with the Chantilly, Virginia, high school. Here are some ways this partnership benefits the school and local families:

Contributions

Fundraising Initiatives
Cox Farms provides support for Westfield’s fundraising efforts. We support school activities by purchasing program advertisements and allowing the Theatre Boosters to use our property to promote their upcoming shows.

Positive After-School Activity
Cox Farms supports fun, safe opportunities for high school students to spend time with friends. We have provided scores of students with thousands of dollars in free tickets to enjoy our Fields of Fear attraction, which brings a night of bonfires, good food and haunts.

Product Donations
Cox Farms donates a variety of items to help Westfield High School stay sharp, including providing tasty summer produce for the Bulldog BBQ to kick off the school year.

Northern Virginia Family Service

Northern Virginia Family Service

Northern Virginia Family Service is a nonprofit community service organization dedicated to helping individuals and families find new paths to self-reliance and brighter futures. NVFS provides case management, safe housing, counseling, medical and dental access, child care and development, affordable loans, foster and respite care and job training. SERVE is NVFS's Manassas campus, which includes a large emergency shelter, food distribution and many other services. Cox Farms is proud to support the critically important work of NVFS. The amount of hope and wide range of programs NVFS provides to families is outstanding, and we are honored to help NVFS in its mission. Throughout the year, we partner with NVFS. From the March Bowlathon through their holiday program, Cox Farms is happy to be involved. As our relationship with NVFS grows, we continue to find ways to help the organization:

Contributions

During Christmas at the Corner Market, we accept donations in lieu of tips. We spread holiday joy by matching all donations received, and the funds go NVFS to ensure that local kids and families have gifts and holiday meals during the season.

Each March, we sponsor up to five employee teams in the Strikes for SERVE Bowlathon – raising over $3,000 for the program each year.

We have also donated hundreds of Fall Festival tickets to NVFS clients. Other support includes food and product donations and starter plants and seeds for their Head Start garden.

Results

Over 70,000 local children from Title 1 schools have received free admission to attend the Fall Festival since 2007.

Several disadvantaged schools in the region are able to visit the Fall Festival annually.

Multiple Parent Teacher Association fundraisers have received donations, from decorative classroom pumpkins to gift certificate raffle prizes.
