What a surprise we received on March 16! In honor of the grand re-opening of the Safeway at Pan Am Shopping Center in Vienna, they presented $2,500 checks to Britepaths and The Arc of Northern Virginia.
And then, one of the managers wanted to have a little friendly competition among Britepaths staff. A shopping spree -- in addition to the check! $2,800 worth of urgent pantry needs -- just when we had some huge holes in our pantry. It was no surprise to us that our Programs Director Christina Garris, who has managed our Food Bridge Program for many years, was the winner. Safeway staff even loaded all the groceries in their big delivery truck and brought them upstairs to our office. It filled our pantry at a time when our supplies were running very low.
Thank you, Safeway for helping us do more for our families!
