All Day

If you are looking for ways to support those in need in our community during this difficult time, please consider supporting the following initiatives with our partner organizations: Food For OthersINOVA Blood ServicesFACETS and the Katherine Hanley Family Shelter.

Olam Tikvah's Social Action Committee has committed funds to support our partners at Food For Others, FACETS and the Katherine Hanley Family Shelter. During this difficult time, these organizations are experiencing a much greater demand for their services. A check can help them get scarce resources. We encourage you to support these organizations individually as well. You can mail a check to them with a letter or card enclosed and signed by you and your family.

Food For Others

OT's donation to Food For Others will support our ongoing Power Pack Program (P3), which helps feed students at Annandale Terrace Elementary whose families rely on free and reduced school meals.

You can support their mission to help feed people in poverty in Fairfax County by mailing a check to:

Food For Others
Attn: Annie Turner, Executive Director
2938 Prosperity Ave
Fairfax, VA 22031

To direct funds specifically to the Power Pack Program, write "OT P3" in the memo line of the check.

INOVA Blood Drives

INOVA Blood Drives at partner locations have been suspended, including our May 3 event, but the need for blood in our region has not subsided. You can still make a blood, plasma or platelet donation at select INOVA blood donation centers with extended hours to facilitate safe social distancing. To donate, you must make an appointment in advance.
