Viva! Vienna!

We enjoyed meeting our neighbors and spreading the word about CHO at Viva!Vienna! last weekend. Thanks to the Rotary Club of Vienna Virginia for the opportunity.

What a great way to celebrate a Milestone Birthday!

Marsha Komandt (see picture with cake knife in hand), a Vienna resident, hardworking member of Emmaus United Church of Christ, and a great friend of CHO and other local nonprofits, opted to celebrate life and give a shout-out to others who had also reached such milestones at Foster’s Grill in Vienna. She requested donations to CHO in lieu of gifts. On behalf of CHO, Food Closet Chair Carolyn Mysel received a large donation of food supplies, some clothing, and $410 in gift cards. Many thanks and Happy Birthdays!

Thanks to the teens at Hope United Methodist Church in Vienna

who participated in a fasting program and at the end, donated cereal, snacks, and drinks for our CHO families. About 40 church members, including Pastor Samuel Addo-Donkoh of Hope UMC and Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Nkrumah – Pastor, Ghana Wesley UMC, Woodbridge (the parent church), came to the Food Closet and learned about our work there. What a wonderful way to celebrate the Easter season!

Many thanks to Vienna Little League baseball

for the cartons of food they collected for CHO as part of their pre-owned baseball equipment swap earlier this month. We are grateful for every box and can of food that can be used to help our neighbors. CHO wishes all players, coaches, and families in the VLL community a safe, happy, and successful 2024 baseball season!
