We are pleased to report that our chapter delivered another 400 $20 grocery gift cards in January to students and their families at six local elementary schools that had received our monthly distribution of weekend food bags.
We know this assistance helps some of the most disadvantaged in our community. One mom was so happy to be able to purchase some much-needed food items that she provided a photo of the backseat of her car filled with grocery bags. The photos showing the smiles on the faces of other families that received the cards are heartwarming.
Since last spring, we’ve donated 4,346 gift cards, valued at $87,280. With help from friends and supporters, we can continue this effort until we resume our Weekend Food for Kids program. Please consider donating to our chapter, either by visiting our website, alnv.org, and using the “donate’ button there; or sending a check to: Assistance League of Northern Virginia, P.O. Box 209, Herndon, VA 20172.
