MLK day of service we partnered with Annandale and Loudoun PTK Chapters at Genesis 12

In celebration of the Martin Luther King National Day of Service, we joined Annandale and Loudoun PTK Chapters at Genesis 12 to help assemble blessing bags for the homeless and for those who have been sexually assaulted. We each took a blessing bag to keep in our cars to give to homeless men and women we encounter in our community. The remaining bags will be delivered to the Lamb Center, a day shelter for the homeless and FACT (Forensic Assessment and Consultation Teams) at Inova Fairfax Hospital. 

Your help is needed!

We need your help for MLK day, 20 Jan, in which we are partnering with Annandale and Loudon PTK Chapters in Alexandria, for more info and to volunteer please sign up at:
