Let's admit it...nothing has been "normal" about 2020. We have all faced many uncertainties in regard to health, work location, virtual school and much more.
One thing we do know, is that food insecurity is still a barrier to learning. The Crossroads team is meeting to evaluate our options to support the children of Haymarket and Gainseville for the upcoming school year.
Prince William County is slated to announce plans doe 2020/2021 on July 15th. We'll have more information about our plans after that time and we'll let you know our next steps.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to connecting with you again soon!
Crossroads-Connection works with counselors at local public schools to identify students who are impacted by food insecurity; Crossroads provides weekend food to those students. Funding comes from local churches, the Heritage Hunt Women's Organization, the Giving Circle of Heritage Hunt, The Women's Club of Dominion Valley, local businesses, and individual donors. The number of children served each year depends on available funding.
Looking Back In Time... Just 5 years ago our organization was reaching 40 children at 4 schools. Today, thanks to donors and volunteers, we helping 120 children at twice as many schools. Can you help?
