100womenstrong grants $639,000 to 51 loudoun nonprofits in support of shelter, health, mental health, hunger, and education. Read more.

Hunger-09

It is almost inconceivable that one of the richest counties in America would have residents who do not have enough to eat on a regular basis. The hardest hit are the children whose parents work sometimes 2 jobs to keep a roof over the family’s head. We have become involved with programs that provide food supplies to families, fill and give back packs to children on Fridays for weekend sustenance and to local growing programs that support the citizens.

100WomenStrong recommends grants to applicants, allowing them to better accomplish, or increase their capacity to fulfill their mission. Each of these grants increases the quality of life for the residents of Loudoun County.

Here is how 100WomenStrong has made an impact:
