Community Needs Being Served Through Public Schools

 

Representatives of churches and others in the community met on July 10th at Catoctin Elementary School in Leesburg, VA to share stories and lessons-learned in providing food backpacks and meeting other needs of students and families in the communities served by over 25 Loudoun County public schools. The food is collected from donations and distributed to students to supplement free and reduced breakfasts and lunches provided at the schools for consumption in evenings, weekends and holidays.  The other needs being addressed include reading & math buddies, tutoring, remedial or enrichment work, homework help, adult English Language Learning, recreational activities, family life coaching, transportation, medical, meeting other physical needs, etc.  Most of the areas served are in the Sterling, Ashburn and Leesburg areas, and the group is looking to expand into the Western or South Dulles areas of Loudoun County.

The group is seeking to be better positioned to address longer-term needs and underlying causes of the needs.  Individuals, businesses and non-profits desiring to get involved my contact Howard Levin, Embrace Loudoun.
