America’s Charities Engagement
America’s Charities employees partnered with
Normandy Real Estate Partners to hold two food drives
during 2013. Normandy’s Chantilly tenants gathered
over 1,100 pounds of non-perishable food that was
then donated to Food for Others, a Community First
member. Even though Northern Virginia is considered
one of the wealthiest jurisdictions in the nation, the
area still faces a poverty rate of 5%. Food for Others
is Fairfax County’s primary safety net for food when
an emergency strikes and for those who need to
supplement their inadequate food supplies.
As part of Normandy’s “Hunger Doesn’t Take a
Vacation” summer food drive, tenants donated over
850 pounds of non-perishable food. America’s
Charities employees then volunteered with Food for
Others and put together hundreds of “Power Packs.”
These packs provide a weekend assortment of food
for elementary school age children to eat at home
providing healthy food outside of school.
