Old Lee Hills/Hugo the Gargoyle Little Free Library Food Drive

Our friends in the Old Lee Hills neighborhood of Fairfax City collected food for our pantry at "Hugo the Gargoyle's" Little Free Library throughout July. They donated a total of 713 pounds, 606 items and $350 in grocery store gift cards. So grateful to the Jaworski and McCarthy families for spearheading this effort and matching donations, the Old Town Fairfax Business Association for sponsoring, and to the many donors who supported this effort.
