We are greatly encouraged by the early success of our A Mighty Cause: A Community Thrives Campaign. After less than a week, the combined contributions of our caring donors equal almost half of our fund-raising goal of $3,000. If we meet that goal, the Gannett Foundation will evaluate our grant application to underwrite our Weekend Food for Kids program. Through that program, we distribute bags of food to sustain students on weekends when school meals aren’t available, and also grocery gift cards to help struggling families stretch their food budgets.
Throughout Northern Virginia, many people live in extreme poverty despite the relative affluence of the area. Our philanthropic programs focus primarily on elementary school students, the most vulnerable in that group. We provide not only food, but also new clothing, sneakers, toiletries, and books. We hope we can count on your generosity so we can reach the growing number of children in need in our community.
