Chores4Charities, a Rockville-Based Organization, is Feeding 2,020 Families This Thanksgiving
Chores4Charities, a Rockville-based organization focused on supporting local families in need, is proud to announce it has reached its goal of feeding 2,020 families for Thanksgiving this year!
Still in its infancy, the organization is hosting its ‘4th Annual Feed-A-Thon’ Wednesday, November 25 with support from area businesses, volunteers and community first responders.
With support from the Office of Community Partnerships of Montgomery County, the holiday program was produced by Chores4Charities founder Marquis Evans.
“It means a great deal to be able to do whatever we can to make Thanksgiving a memorable day full of great food and good memories for these deserving families,” said Evans. “We want to see the community come together and take care of one another this holiday season.”
Following an unprecedented year, the meals couldn’t come at a better time with the pandemic back on the rise, and the arrival of another surge of unemployment.
The Feed-A-Thon, sponsored by Nando’s Peri Peri, is providing a meal kit to each family (feeds four to six people) which includes: two whole chickens and four pounds of mash potatoes.
Each meal kit will be delivered across Montgomery, Frederick, and Prince George’s counties, and Washington, D.C. to communities and organizations in need; delivered by: Family Services – Sheppard Pratt Health System, 88 Visual, Creating Healthy Bonds & School-Community Youth Services, Langley McCormick Elementary School, Raised to Reach Back, Inc., Housing Authority of the City of Frederick, Hearts and Homes, Rockville City Police Department, Jerk ‘N Jive Fredrick, KurtisCross.com, 88 Visual, Blair G. Ewing Center, Special Programs, and the Director’s Office of Innovation, and Outreach for Montgomery County Public Schools.
