Soergels to be Honored as Champions for Children


Congratulations to Dagobert and Lissa Soergel, who will be honored with the “Champion for Children” Award sponsored by the Center for Alexandria ’s Children on Thursday, February 28 at the CAC Fourth Annual Gala in Old Town Alexandria.

The Soergels’ nomination is based on their decades of service to Alexandria ’s at-risk children, principally through their efforts at the Child and Family Network Center .  They were the driving force behind the creation of the CFNC.  Dagobert has since served on the CFNC Board for many years and has also been active on various Virginia preschool and early childhood education committees.

At Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill, longtime parishioners Dagobert and Lissa have spearheaded two annual outreach efforts on behalf of children:  the December Christmas Families project, working with Alexandria Social Services and the Child and Family Network Center to provide clothing, books, and toys for needy families; and the summertime Christmas Families in August drive to provide school supplies for children in need.
