Thanks for the Food!

Thank you

Food does matter, and thanks to your generosity, ALIVE! was able to feed 706 households comprised of 2,476 individals this weekend at their Saturday Distribution. The Westminster Presbyterian congregation deserves special notice--they were so motivated by our action and ALIVE!'s work, they collected and delivered 26 bags of food for the hungry on their own!

We'd also like to recognize our very first corporate sponsor, Food Matters for their strong commitment to ending hunger in Alexandria and their leadership in giving back to their community.

While last week's action is complete, Alexandria's hungry families continue to need your help. ALIVE! needs donations and volunteers throughout the year. On Thursday, ALIVE! Executive Director Ken Naser told me about the couple who dropped off 800 lbs. of food to ALIVE! this week from the back of their truck. Instead of spending their work bonus to pay bills or to buy themselves something special, they went shopping for food to share with those less fortunate.

We can all be inspired by such kindness.
