Food Donations Accepted through Oct. 30 in Hunter Mill District
Oct. 21, 2011
The Hunter Mill District Supervisor's Office, in conjunction with Connections for Hope, is collecting food items through Oct. 30 for the Helping Hungry Kids Backpack Food Program.This program provides nutritious, kid-friendly food items to kids in the area who don’t get enough to eat on the weekends. Many kids rely on school breakfasts and lunches for the majority of their nutrition. On the weekends, many go hungry.
One of the schools in the Hunter Mill District distributes 100 food backpacks each week to its students, and this year, more schools have asked to be included in the distribution.
Items may be dropped off at the North County Government Center, 12000 Bowman Towne Drive, Reston; Connections for Hope, 13525 Dulles Technology Drive, Herndon; or Reston Community Center, 2310 Colts Neck Road, Reston. For more information, call 703-478-0283, TTY 711.
