How to Help Local Family Who Lost 3 Year Old

On the evening of Saturday, September 23, 2017, a 3-year old boy tragically lost his life when he was struck by a car on Executive Avenue in Alexandria, across the street from Casa Chirilagua. While they are not part of Casa programs, we are still grieving with the Zuniga family and want to support them in practical ways. We will receive monetary and gift card donations on behalf of this family. At this time the family is not in need of meal deliveries but appreciates greatly the thought and offer. NOTE: Casa Chirilagua will only serve as a pass-through, please know your gift is NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE.


Here are three different options if you would like to give:


PayPal: Go to to give online.


CHECKS can be made to “Casa Chirilagua”, and in the memo section please write “for the Zuniga Family.”


GIFT CARDS should be mailed to: Casa Chirilagua, 4109 Mount Vernon Ave, Alexandria VA 22305. You must include a note which states, “for the Zuniga Family.”


Please share this page with others who have shown interest in supporting this family. Should you have any questions please contact our Development Director, Janice Lam at


Thank you to our community leaders and neighbors for your interest and willingness to help support this family during a time of such tragic loss.
