Leesburg, VA; Loudoun Hunger Relief is so excited to be included in the Dulles Greenway’s 14th annual Drive for Charity event this year! The Drive for Charity is on Thursday, May 16, 2019. On this day, 100% of tolls collected will be donated to seven local charities and the Dulles Greenway Scholarship Program. The Dulles Greenway is proud to have contributed over $3.3 million in the past thirteen years! Loudoun Hunger Relief plans to use the Drive for Charity donation to help pay for the operations of a new Mobile Pantry due to roll out in the fall of 2019.
LHR Executive Director, Jennifer Montgomery, said “The Dulles Greenway’s Drive for Charity is a wonderful benefit to non-profits in our community. We are so pleased to be included this year, especially since we’re rolling out our Mobile Pantry in the fall. We plan to use the Drive for Charity funds to fuel the operations of the Mobile Pantry. So when people drive the Dulles Greenway on May 16, they are also driving hunger out of our community.”
Loudoun Hunger Relief’s Mobile Pantry will take groceries and pantry services into neighborhoods where people are in need, but lack transportation to get to LHR’s Leesburg location.
Other non-profits included in the Drive for Charity this year are: Loudoun Hunger Relief, Loudoun Free Clinic, Loudoun Wildlife, Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter, ECHO, Fresh Air/Full Care and the March of Dimes.
Terry Hoffman, public and customer relations manager for the Dulles Greenway, said “Every day, we help people on their way as they travel through our region. We also take our obligation to help people in need in our community seriously. The Drive for Charity is a way for us to provide both funding and awareness for our non-profit partners. We’re excited to welcome Loudoun Hunger Relief to the group this year, and pleased that the funding will assist with the Mobile Pantry launch this fall.”
