Community

"Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It's important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It's the way in which we ourselves grow and develop."  

                  -Dr. Dorothy I. Height, president and CEO of the NCNW

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

SEPTEMBER

Our community service project for the September 13, 2018 meeting is in cooperation with the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank. The mission of the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank is to distribute food effectively through collaborative efforts that minimize hunger, promote nutrition and encourage self-reliance through education.  In 2017 it was reported that nearly 75,000 residents across the greater Virginia Peninsula are food insecure. At our meeting we will host a Peanut Butter Drive.  Peanut butter is a shelf-stable source of protein that food banks love and need. Let's help keep our local foodbank's bounty full!

We will be collecting regular sized jars of peanut butter as well as monetary donations.
