CHO’s new food closet!
On Sunday, September 24, Vienna Presbyterian Church (VPC) hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of CHO’s new Food Closet at VPC. You can see CHO’s Carolyn Mysel cutting the ribbon, with Reverend Dr. Hope Lee of VPC (second from left) and representatives of Belong! and VPC participating. Members of the congregation were invited to tour the space afterwards. Thanks again to VPC for their interest and support.
Thank you to the Westwood Country Club 18 Holers for their contribution to CHO!
