In December 2021, Leesburg Executive Airport and ProJet Aviation were collecting donations for the Loudoun Hunger Relief charity. My three sons and I decided to join in on the effort.
I rallied my children to accompany me on this mission. I sat down with the boys and explained the plan. We would purchase food at the supermarket and drop it at the airport. The Loudoun Hunger charity would distribute the food to families in need. The boys were very eager to help out!
We filled up a shopping cart to the top with groceries, then purchased $500 worth of grocery store gift cards. These cards are redeemable at the supermarket, allowing people to buy food themselves.
It was a fantastic opportunity to help the children understand the importance of kindness in their lives. We had a great time together as we bonded through kindness.
Donating food and grocery cards is one of the most critical things the community can do for the hungry in Loudoun County. By donating to LHR, we can help feed our neighbors in need.
