Many volunteers gathered Thursday August 17 to help take delivery of 3,000# of canned good and other food items at the Haymarket Walmart. All in preparation for the new school year and the Weekend Food Program to serve children in need. Thank you all for your help! A special thanks to the Occoquan Bible Church's youth ministry team for helping to get it all to the basement. You can see photos of this event on our Facebook page.
SCHOOL STARTS AUGUST 28! In just 1 week children return to schools in our area. Crossroads-Connection is preparing to feed those who would otherwise not have food over the weekends. Important dates:

COMING SOON - NEW EMAIL FORMAT: Soon Crossroads-Connection will migrate from the usual email sent from our gmail address to Mailchimp, an email marketing service. This is due to limitations that Comcast places on the number of recipients that can be included in any email. We currently have over 130 names on our mailing list which means sending the same email message to 3 different mailing lists. Mailchimp provides this service for free to small charitable organizations such as Crossroads-Connection. It is assumed you voluntarily granted permission to receive periodic emails from Crossroads-Connection. If this is not the case, it is simple to unsubscribe by clicking on a link at the bottom of the email. We'll miss you if you do! If new to Crossroads-Connection, you can subscribe by clicking on Newsletter at the top right of this page.
Crossroads-Connection works with counselors at local public schools to provide weekend food for children in need. Funding comes from local churches and church organizations, the Heritage Hunt Women's Organization, the Giving Circle of Heritage Hunt, local businesses, and individual donors. The number of children served each year depends on available funding.
The 2017–2018 School Year Commitment is to serve 80 children:
