During the Thanksgiving holiday, many of us are able to spend time with our family and friends, enjoying a wonderful feast in a safe and comfortable environment. But not everyone is that fortunate.
Reston Interfaith is a leading service provider that offers support and advocacy for those in need of food, immediate shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare, and other human services for about 20,000 people each year in the Northern Virginia area. For the past several years, ILS has partnered with Reston Interfaith to support their annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.
On 18 November this year, ILS brought over 15 boxes of nonperishable items to the Interfaith collection team at one of their drop off locations in Reston, Virginia.
Thanks to Reston Interfaith, and the generosity of many local businesses and individuals, over 1,700 boxes of food were collected this year. This means that over 700 families in need were able to enjoy a healthy and complete Thanksgiving meal.
