SPECIAL FOOD COLLECTION

Food For Others/Power Pack Program

All donations needed by Friday, October 20.

Food For Others is a local non-profit food bank and food rescue operation serving Fairfax and Arlington Counties. The Power Pack Program provides elementary school-aged students in our area with a pack of food that they can bring home and eat over the weekend.

This drive is part of an interfaith Communities for Dialogue effort. Each year, the Interfaith Communities for Dialogue encourages different faith communities to join with one another to do volunteer work that benefits the community. This year, St. Marks Church, a Catholic Church and MakeSpace, a Muslim Community Outreach, have asked us to join them in this Community Project  The three organizations will be getting together on Sunday, October 22, 2:00pm to pack the bags at 6082 Franconia Road, Suite C, Alexandria.  If you are interested in volunteering please contact Clare Bachner.
