American Heritage Girls Troop 1027 stopped by the FAFB this week to take a tour and bring much needed food. Part of the American Heritage Girls mission to build women of integrity through service was evident in their actions towards the hungry of our community. The ladies collected 192 pounds of food to provide 160 meals for those struggling with hunger. Thank you ladies for your wonderful service to our community.
Addison Everett, a second grader at Hugh Mercer Elementary, is turning 8 on January 27, and she is celebrating by holding her 3rd Annual Food and Funds Drive to help the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank.
Before her 6th birthday, Addison saw a commercial on the Disney channel that talked about a girl who collected shoes for a village. Ever since she saw it, she has been asking to “help people” for her birthday because “she has a lot of stuff and some people have none.” After touring the food bank during her first donation drop off, Addison decided to make giving back part of her birthday tradition.
She is hoping to grow the amount of food she collects each year as she grows bigger. Last year, she collected 1,341 lbs. of food. According to Addison, we need to “tell people who will tell people who will tell more people so everyone can help.”
