We will once again be collecting food and gift cards to donate to the Dulles South Food Pantry. Over the last two years STG’s HQ staff has donated a total of 290 lbs. of food and $650.00 in gift cards. This year we want to continue giving back and increase those numbers. The Dulles South Food Pantry provides food supplies to local families in need. This includes donated non-perishable items as well as fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, and eggs, which are purchased weekly by way of the donated gift cards. Their operation is relatively small but impressive and very successful. This year we will be collecting food through December 20th, 2017. This allows time for delivery and sorting prior to the holiday.
This year, some of the items they need are as follows:
- Bags of flour and sugar
- Bottles of laundry detergent
- Canned proteins (chicken, tuna, sardines, etc.)
- Canned fruit
- 1lb or 2lb bags of rice
- Boxed pasta
- All canned tomato products (sauce, diced, stewed)
- Tomato paste
- Dry beans and lentils
- Flavored oatmeal
- Granola bars
- Chef Boyardee (regular size and individual – preferably with pop top opening)
- Other non-perishable food products will also be accepted
The donation box is located in the main lobby adjacent to the receptionist’s desk.
We appreciate and thank everyone that has participated in the past. We hope to have your continued support for 2017.
If there are any questions, contact the Facilities Team.
Thank you all and . . . Happy Holidays!
