Many children in need receive their meals at school.
During winter break, however, food isn’t always accessible to them.
Helen Zurita, a Manassas resident, is ensuring that they are remaining well nourished.
The East End Mobile Home Park advocate is collecting non-perishables until December 15.
These are the food items she’s accepting:
- Breakfast bars
- Canned fruit
- Canned soup
- Canned tuna
- Cup of noodles
- Dry beans (black or pinto)
- Hormel meals
- Instant oatmeal
- Peanut butter
- Spaghetti sauce
In addition to food, Zurita is collecting blankets for the children.
Those interested in making a donation may contact Zurita at 571-201-6226.
Anyone who would like to participate in the gift giving program may reach out to Sue Khalateri from Fourth Wish Foundation at 703-861-7834.
