Each November St. Veronica parish is responsible for delivering food items to those in need in the Herndon, Sterling and Ashburn areas. LINK, an organization of churches and local businesses, helps out folks all year long with different programs including help with electric bills and emergency relief for those who qualify. The food that you see in the vestibules on the second Sunday of the month is taken on a regular basis to one of the LINK pantries on the campuses of one of the member churches. This food then is packed up based on the families’ needs and delivered to their homes. Some of you have helped in the past with this. Thank you!
We need drivers for this month’s deliveries, Tuesday-Friday evenings or early Saturday afternoons. You would be sent an email the evening before with your clients’ information, and you would let them know when you can deliver the next day. Then, the day of the delivery, you would pick up the already packed items from the LINK pantry and make your deliveries.
