HACSI For Covid-19 Relief in Washington Metro Area (DMV area)

The Corona Pandemic truly created unrelenting suffering across the globe and our Washington Metro area is no exception. It has led to severe economic down turn with loss of employment. HACSI decided to extend a helping hand to people with food insecurity in DC, Prince George’s County, Montgomery County in Maryland and Fairfax County in Northern Virginia.
We conducted Grab & Go grocery Food Drives 8 times during May- November 2020.  We delivered 106,000 pounds of groceries to 3,840 families serving around 15,000 individuals. HACSI  is a friend indeed of those in need!
We continued our financial commitment to DC Central Kitchen even though our volunteers could not prepare food at DCCK due to Covid-19. Similarly we gave monetary assistance to all 6 Montgomery County HELPs. We delivered hot foods once a Month to all the residents at Bailey’s Cross Roads shelter in Falls Church, Virginia.
None of these activities would have been possible without the commitment of our volunteers and generous donations from our dedicated supporters. Our volunteers gave 1600 hours of selfless service and HACSI expended over $100,000 in 2020 till November.
The Board of directors of HACSI immensely thank all the volunteers and Donors.
