Langley School successfully completes food drive

Must Read

While the COVID pandemic meant students and staff at the Langley School in McLean were unable to conduct an in-person “Day of Giving” for 2021, the school community rallied to support the broader community with a food drive.

For three weeks, students, parents and faculty/staff worked to gather food for So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E.), a D.C.-based organization supporting those experiencing homelessness and poverty.

The Langley community raised more than $5,000 and collected more than 2,000 non-perishable food items to donate to S.O.M.E.

Donated items were loaded onto a Langley school bus, providing students with a visual representation of the collective impact small contributions can make.

“In addition to learning about the value of serving others, students also gained a deeper understanding of how food insecurity impacts many in our community,” school officials said.

Founded in 1942, the Langley School offers classes for students in preschool through eighth grade.
