“A Simple Gesture” Hits 50,000 Pounds!!

The Cool, Green Bag Brigade has come through again. For the first time, more than 420 donors filled their cool, green bags with over 10,000 pounds of non-perishable food. All of the food was delivered to Cornerstone’s Reston Pantry and LINK’s Pantry in Herndon.

Over the life of the program we have provided 51,363 pounds. That’s more than 25 tons! Not bad for a project that started in June 2015 with just 20 donors.

On Saturday, there were 34 drivers and 14 pantry volunteer workers.

A Simple Gesture can expand further when you let your friends and neighbors know about us. By having more donors within the same neighborhood, our drivers can be more efficient. Those who are interested can visit our website at www.CoolGreenBag.org and automatically sign-up. When they do, we will deliver a cool, green bag directly to their house.

Have a few hours to help? You can volunteer. We need people to drive, sort food, sign up more donors and help with administrative tasks on a periodic basis. If you are interested, just drop me an email.

Your generosity is truly appreciated. Keep up the good work!
