Easter Basket Project for Homestretch

Can you help provide an Easter basket for a homeless child?  Working with our partner, Homestretch (homestretchva.org), we will supply 100 plus Easter baskets for homeless children living in Northern Virginia.

Our goal is to provide homeless children in the Homestretch program and our children from Cunningham Park Elementary School who are participating in our Mentor Program with an Easter basket filled with the usual Easter candy, but also at least 6 useful, new items that the child could use or would appreciate.  Please sign up to indicate the specific gender and grade-level of the child for whom you will prepare a basket.

Cunningham Park Update

img_4208-reduced-sizeOur mentoring program kicked off on November 10.  We are blessed to have 17 mentors on board, and look forward to seeing where God will take us on this journey as we reach out to our neighbors at Cunningham Park.  The need is great, and we look forward to growing our roster of volunteers to serve the 60 children that have been identified as candidates for mentees.  Additional plans are to partner with local churches and Generosity Feeds to provide food for the many families in Vienna and Oakton that do not have adequate food on the weekends. We would love to have additional volunteers on the leadership team as we plan this and other events to fight hunger in our community!   The website for our event is now live at https://www.generosityfeeds.org/va/vienna/262
