We learned last Thursday from guest speaker Rev. Mary Kay Brown that St. David's Episcopal Church is collecting items to be shipped to Liberia in the effort to fight the spread of the Ebola virus. The "Liberia Wish List" of needed items is available to view and purchase at the attached Amazon.com link. Please take a moment to consider donating and thank you to member Adam Benware for creating the list on Amazon.com!

Teaming with the Leesburg Evening and Gainesville-Haymarket Rotary Clubs and seniors from Freedom High School, Ashburn Rotary will be participating in the Stop Hunger Now food bagging project on October 15 from 10:00a - 2:00p.  The event will take place at Arcola United Methodist Church, in the old chapel at 24757 Evergreen Mills Road. Anyone interested in participating should contact Ashburn club member Scott Miller. 
 
The church is also the host site for the Dulles South Food Pantry. Participants are encouraged to bring a small non-perishable food donation for the pantry when attending as a token of thanks for its influence in obtaining the use of the chapel. The pantry is very low on pasta sauce, tomato products of all kinds, cooking oil, nonperishable milk or milk substitutes of all kinds, canned fruit, pancake mix, baking mixes, and personal supplies such as soap, toothpaste, and shampoo.
