Our Reston, VA team collected items to donate to families in need this holiday season. Nina, Chester and Michael (pictured here) were inspired to give by the need expressed by McNair Elementary School’s counselor.
When talking to him, the McNair school counselor said, “The thickest jacked one of the boys had was a sweater. One of the teachers went into the counselor’s office to look for a spare jacket. The only one they had was a jacket that was obviously too big on him. When the teacher gave the boy the jacket to try it on he said: ‘This is a jacket that I’ve always wanted.'”
Great job, Reston team! Continue Living the Mission in Virginia.
