Many members of HWC began participating in A Simple Gesture, an all-volunteer non-profit group dedicated to feeding the hungry in the Reston/Herndon area sponsored by Shoreshim. The first Saturday of every other month a “really cool, green bag” is filled by a member with non-perishable food items. Each bag is picked up by volunteers. An empty bag is left to be filled for the next visit. Other volunteers help unload and sort the food as they reach an area pantry. It is estimated that for every 100 people who participates, one ton of additional food a month will be collected!
On Saturday, April 1, 2017 by 8:30 a.m. your filled cool, green bag should be placed outside for pick up by volunteers. If you would like more information or wish to help, sign up online at:
