8th Grader Creates Light Show to Help Collect Donations for an Emergency Food Pantry

Earlier this evening Jess Berrellez, president of the Ridgeview Middle School PTA, reached out to let us know of a remarkable 8th grader who created an amazing holiday light show to delight friends and neighbors, and collect donations for the  RMS PTSA Emergency Food Pantry.

The show debuts this Saturday, 12/19 and is located on Damson Terrace in North Potomac, at the end of the cul-de-sac. The show is 3 songs long and will run continuously every night through Sunday, 12/27, from 6-9:00 pm.

The collection bin will be next to Santa Clause & mailbox and the pantry serves students at RMS and across the QOHS cluster.

Food items such as pasta, beans, oatmeal, and soup are in high demand, as are new and unopened personal hygiene products like soap, shampoo, and toilet paper.

Thank you so much Moco Show for all your kind words! This drive is a huge help because our pantry is almost empty. Our PTSA president is making 7 deliveries today and has more for Monday. In addition to non-perishables and personal items, we can also accept financial donations. Checks can be mailed to the Ridgeview Middle School Attn: RMS PTSA or sent via PayPal using this email address: rmsptsatreasurere@gmail.com.

Thank you again for your support!

Just left the street and no lights no music and no collection area?? So sad.

We were just here. You are incorrect. You must follow sign and turn on your radio to 106.1. There is the music that matches the light show. It was very nice and we placed our food in box. Very thoughtful family for doing this.
