Assistance League of Northern Virginia distributed another 400 $20 grocery gift cards in October to families at the six schools that normally would have received the Weekend Food for Kids food bags.
The charity is able to continue these distributions each month in part because of the donations it has been receiving, some from first-time donors and some from long-time supporters of its philanthropic programs.
Also, as part of its New Clothing for Kids program, Assistance League delivered new clothing and shoes to several schools just before they closed because of the pandemic. The chapter is pleased that counselors are starting to distribute some of the new shoes from those shipments. With schools now open, at least to school administrators, counselors are better able to retrieve these essential items and provide them to students.
To help the chapter continue these essential endeavors, visit its website, ALNV.org, and select the ‘Donate’ option to contribute by credit card; or send a check to Assistance League of Northern Virginia, P.O. Box 209, Herndon, VA 20172.
