While at the end of June Loudoun Cares concluded its initial month-long “Loudoun Cares Champions” tax-deductible fundraiser to bolster its efforts to assist Loudoun’s most vulnerable, residents and businesses can still donate to Loudoun Cares through its website, loudouncares.org.
The Loudoun Cares flagship program, Information and Referral Helpline, provides the County’s most vulnerable residents with resources they need, including food, clothing, shelter, and utility relief. A second Loudoun Cares program, the Online Volunteer Center, matches those seeking volunteer opportunities, with organizations looking for volunteers. Loudoun Cares also runs the Claude Moore Community Builders Program, which provides leadership training for high school students who then work with local nonprofits. Several students have received Presidential medals in recognition of their extraordinary volunteerism.
Sue Khalil, executive director of Loudoun Cares, said, “Increased community participation in these vital programs has sparked a call for program expansion.”
