Assistance League of Northern Virginia is partnering with the Franklin Farm Social Committee for another combined Paper-Shred, Sneaker, and Food-Donation Event on Sunday, September 25, from noon to 3 pm., in the Dairy Lou Parking Lot at 13501 Franklin Farm Road, Herndon. The Social Committee will collect nonperishable food for a local food pantry AND we will also sell the 2022 White House ornament, which features the gingerbread houses that were featured during the early 70s.
In addition to accepting your boxes of important papers for shredding, we are also collecting gently used sneakers as a fund-raiser. This is the perfect time to clean out your file cabinets and shoe racks and dispose of unneeded papers and athletic shoes.
A donation of $10 or more is suggested (Cash or Checks preferred; Credit Cards accepted). Your donation will help the students and their families at the local elementary schools that we serve. Only paper items can be accepted for shredding. No plastic, aluminum, wood or metal. We reserve the right to limit quantities.
We will again collect athletic shoes as a fund-raiser through our partnership with GotSneakers. We can only accept pairs of athletic shoes. No work boots, flipflops, Crocs, or metal cleats. GotSneakers provides the shoes to those who can’t afford quality sneakers, or recycles those not usable by others. In addition, the Franklin Farm Social Committee will be collecting canned goods and other non-perishable food items for the Community of Faith Food Pantry. Please bring your food donations and help relieve hunger in our community.
This year’s White House ornament depicts the cherished tradition of displaying gingerbread houses in the State Dining Room during the holidays. Included with this boxed keepsake is a gingerbread-scented booklet and a recipe card. Our price is $23.
When you drop off your important papers to shred, donate nonperishable food items for the food pantry, and drop-off your sneakers, you can help with three important projects in one trip, and also get a head start on the holidays!
