✨ "I teach because I know the power of having someone be there, and show up for me every single day. I live for building relationships with students, and being a support system that allows them to discover strengths and opportunities they never knew they had. I love seeing the pride and responsibility my students begin to take in themselves and their education. Once we make big dreams, I not only get to teach them the skills to achieve them, but be their biggest fan along the way."

— Kelsey Bothwell, 3rd grade teacher at Dogwood Elementary School, FCPS
In conjunction with our Diaper Drive (running through May 31), we are also in the throes of food deliveries! We've now delivered to Dogwood Elementary School, FCPS/HHK, Sterling Middle School VA and INMED Partnerships for Children, helping to fill the bellies of their hungry families. Through our tremendous partnership with Giant Food and the generosity of our members, colleagues and constituents, we will be delivering food for the next several weeks. A huge thank you to all of you; we really are making a difference for those in need.
Herndon Reston Youth Lacrosse is actively recruiting 10U 3rd and 4th grade boys born between: 09/01/2010 and 08/31/2012 for our modified field teams.

Recuerdos!! Stephanie
On Friday, December 4th, the Foundation team was busy making stops all around the community. Brand new coats and Giant Food gift cards were delivered to Dogwood Elementary School, FCPS followed by a delivery of the same to Sterling Middle School VA. In rounding out the day, the team delivered Giant Food gift cards to INMED USA hoping to ease the burden for so many during this time of year.
It was a beautiful day to get books and see so many Dogwood Dragons. 💚
Since February 1, our Weekend Meal Drive has been collecting food donations to help children with weekend hunger issues. However, recent school closures have led to additional hardships for children who receive breakfast and lunch at school. So, the Foundation reached out to Susan Livingood, the parent liaison for Dogwood Elementary School, FCPS in Fairfax County, and arranged an early distribution of Weekend Meal Drive donations to ensure that children and families in need were taken care of. Thank you so much to Whitney Bradley & Brown - WBB, Inc. , members of the credit union, NWFCU employees and everyone else who partnered with us and donated so generously for allowing us to help fulfill this crucial need!
Students at Hunters WoodsElementary and Dogwood Elementary School, FCPS in worked to create this community artwork that will be finalized and celebrated today.
