DowellGroup Provides Backpack Buddies for Youth

When: Sunday, November 18

Where: Ashburn, VA

The DowellGroup volunteered at the Ashburn Community Center on Sunday, November 18, 2012, preparing “Backpack Buddies” for Loudoun County youth. The group filled the backpacks with healthy food, such as apple sauce and mandarin oranges.

This program provides food for less fortunate families by way of sending children home on the weekends with backpacks containing food to ensure the family has at least one healthy meal each day the child is not in school.
