Food Drive for Cornerstones

Date: 
Saturday, August 12, 2017 - 10:00 to 18:00

THIS WORKS SUNDAY 2017 EVENT HAS CONCLUDED! 

PLEASE CONSIDER PARTICIPATING IN ANOTHER PROJECT!

Most food banks run low on supplies during the summer months, and the Emergency Food Pantry of Reston-based Cornerstones is no exception.  As in years past, the situation in the summer of 2017 is shaping up as critical.  Donations are down - but the need remains as great as ever.

By volunteering for the Works Sunday 2017 Food Drive, you can help keep the shelves of the Cornerstones Emergency Food Pantry well-stocked for hundreds of hard-pressed families and individuals who depend upon its assistance to keep hunger and malnutrition at bay.

It's easy!  All you'll do is hand out shopping lists of needed food and hygiene items to incoming customers at one of four local grocery stores.  As they leave, they'll deposit their donations in specially-marked shopping carts.  Other volunteers will stop by periodically during the day to collect and deliver donated items to the Cornerstones Pantry.

Since shifts are only 2 hours long, it's a terrific family activity, an easy means for teens to earn service hours for school, and a great way to introduce younger kids to the wonderful feeling of satisfaction that comes from knowing you've helped those in need.

PLEASE NOTE!   

The Works Sunday 2017 Food Drive for Cornerstones takes place on SATURDAY, August 12th - a week and a day before Works Sunday itself.  Shifts run from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon, 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, and 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, EXCEPT at North Point Giant, when they run from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm, and from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Children age 12 and under MUST be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.  Minors ages 13 through 17 may participate on their own if they bring a completed and signed Works Sunday 2017 Permission Form with them to the event.  Permission Forms may be obtained by e-mailing Food Drive chairperson Christopher Wist at Wistlaw@aol.com.
