The pandemics impact can be seen as our event lots overflow has we work to close the hunger gap in local communities.
On April 30, 2021 several families living at Chase Heritage Apartments lost everything in a devastating fire. Many of the families have small children that attend Guilford Elementary School and are having a difficult time dealing with the aftermath. Once local community leader April Taylor was made aware that families were displaced, she immediately contacted the school to see how she could help. After speaking with school officials Ms. Taylor reached out to Washington Football Star Jimmy Moreland and NFL Hall of Famer Darrell Green who have been ongoing supporters and tirelessly using their resources and platform to assist those in need.

Through the continued support of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors we have selected Sugarland Elementary School as the host location where we will provide families with food, children coats, blankets, diapers, and toys.
In accordance with local CDC guidelines, all items will be available to people in vehicles via a drive-through system and monitored walk-up designated area that allows for strict social distancing. People will need to remain in their vehicles as volunteers load the items into their vehicles.
