We are thrilled to launch our participation in the fund-raising challenge sponsored jointly by Mighty Cause and The Gannett Foundation. The first hurdle of the challenge, called A Mighty Cause: A Community Thrives, is to raise a minimum of $3000 between noon on July 18 and 9 pm on August 12. If we meet that goal, the Gannett Foundation will accept our grant application to fund our Weekend Food for Kids program. Through that program we deliver 1660 bags of nonperishable food each month during the school year to students at six elementary schools, and grocery gift cards to a seventh school. All seven schools receive grocery gift cards during the summer to reduce food insecurity for students and their families.
Please recognize the importance of the essential services we provide and make a contribution during the next 4 weeks. We welcome donations in any amount over $5. To contribute, you can either scan the QR code or follow this link and use the DONATE button: https://www.mightycause.com/organization/Assistance-League-Of-Northern-Virginia. There you can also learn about all our programs and the significant impact we have on children’s development. In addition, we return to the community more than 85% of the money we raise in support of our programs that feed, clothe, and educate students in Fairfax and Prince William counties and the city of Alexandria.
