We held another successful food-packing and clothing delivery this month. As part of our Weekend Food for Kids program, we delivered 1680 bags of nonperishable food to 6 elementary schools in Fairfax and Prince William Counties, and grocery gift cards to a school in Alexandria. In addition, we distributed 330 items of clothing to 7 schools as part of our New Clothing for Kids program. Based on specific requests from counselors regarding their school’s needs, our savvy shoppers purchased shorts, short sleeve t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweatpants and leggings, as well as about 100 pairs of socks and 100 sets of underwear. This month’s clothing delivery was even more critical because we fulfilled a school’s request to help two students needing basic clothing items. We also delivered 26 pairs of sneakers to a school that had not yet requested shoes this year. It’s gratifying to imagine how much happiness we provided to students and families by delivering these essentials.
