We had another very successful food packing in November and were gratified that 79 volunteers participated in packing 1,610 bags of food that were then delivered to six elementary schools in Northern Virginia. Our helpers included representatives from our long-time supporters, including our partner, Dominion Energy, as well as Dunn Loring Rotary, Sandy Spring Bank, and Lexis Nexis. We were pleased to welcome 23 first-time volunteers, including a team of 16 from Perspecta! We packed the supplemental food bags in about an hour, while enjoying the company of the other happy volunteers.
Consider helping with our next food packing, on Thursday, December 19, starting at 10:00 am at Dominion Energy’s facility at 3072 Centreville Road, Herndon, Va. We pack food on the third Thursday of the month during the school year, so join us whenever you can.
