Give Back at Reston’s Works Sunday Aug. 16

Works Sunday 2014/Credit: Tim BarwickThere is still time to give back at Works Sunday this weekend.

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):

Donate to a shelter for abused women

Stock Shelves at Cornerstones’ Food Pantry

Diaper drive for families in need 

Help senior citizens with home repair

Help run a prayer service at Lake Anne Fellowship House

Donate blood Saturday at United Christian Parish

Sing and play music at a talent show/ice cream social at Tall Oaks Assisted Living

See the entire list, as well as registration info, on the Works Sunday website.
