Works Sunday, this year on Aug. 16, is a day of community service organized by Reston’s faith communities.
For 20 years, congregants have worked side-by-side on Works Sunday projects that help a spectrum of people in need –from serving lunch at the Embry Rucker Community Shelter to giving blood to helping out at Ronald McDonald House (which houses the families of sick children) at Inova Fairfax Hospital.
Signups have gone around at many of Reston’s churches and synagogues, but help is still needed.
Some project details (some involve time, some just a donation):
See the entire list, as well as registration info, on the Works Sunday website.
