Woodburn Elementary Food Drive

DONATION DETAILS
Deadline: 
Every Saturday by 4pm (until stay at home order is done)

Location: 
3403 Cypress Drive
Holmes Run Acres Neighborhood
Items may be placed in boxes at the end of the driveway

Many Woodburn families receive “Power Packs” through a community organization called Food for Others. Power Packs are bags of food for the weekend for elementary school students and their families. During this time of crisis, the Woodburn community is helping Food for Others as they serve our area’s families who are in need.

If you are able, please consider donating shelf stable food by dropping it off at a Woodburn neighbor and volunteer’s home: 3403 Cypress Drive (in Holmes Run Acres neighborhood). Please drop donations by 4pm on Saturdays for distribution the following week. You will see boxes at the end of the driveway.

Here’s what has been requested:

  • Rice
  • Dried Beans
  • Pasta
  • Flour Maseca – corn flour to make tortillas
  • Canned tuna
  • Canned tomatoes/sauce
  • Nuts
  • Cereal
  • Crackers
  • Bread
  • Fruit juice
  • Cooking oil
  • Granola bars
  • Nutella
  • Toilet Paper
  • Diapers

If you would like to make a financial contribution, you can support efforts by donating to either Food for Others (foodforothers.org/give-money/ ) or the FCPS Foundation (fcpsfoundation.org/impact/kids-in-need/) which has supported meals for students and their families during the week.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING
OUR WOODBURN FAMILIES!
