UPCOMING EVENTS & OPERATION SCHOOL BELL DONATION DRIVE

As mentioned in our previous newsletter and blog, Speedpro Centreville is working with the Assistance League of Northern Virginia to volunteer hours and effort to their philanthropic programs.

One of these programs, Operation School Bell, provides children with clothes, jackets, shoes and personal grooming supplies. Often these items are the first time they have had something brand new. Children enrolled in this program go on to miss fewer school days and experience greater educational success. Read more here.

The school year 2015-16 saw the provision of new clothing or shoes to 814 children. Haircuts for 400 kids and 466 students were provided with their own toiletries and grooming products. And this is Speedpro Centreville’s next area of focus. We are going to be hosting a collection point as part of Assistance League’s spring toiletries drive.

Of course, the list could be endless but the following items have the highest demand;

  • Toothpaste & Toothbrushes
  • Deodorant
  • Shampoo
  • Body Wash

Teen related or baby products are graciously received and we kindly request full-sized toiletry and personal grooming supplies over travel sized and samples.

April Newsletter – It starts with giving

 

At SpeedPro Centreville we want to forge long-lasting relationships with our clients and in our community. And during March we worked hard to implement that ethos and we commit to continue working with that philosophy each and every month!

Raising the Roof gala benefiting Helping Haitian Angels

With over $160,000 raised and 5 children fully sponsored for the next year, the Raising the Roof gala was definitely a huge success! This annual gala supports the work of Helping Haitian Angels, a charitable organization established in 2008, that has developed a community in Haiti.

This year’s focus was to raise funds to build a church for the children, as well as the wider community who also flock to the village to attend.

After visiting herself, studio owner Amy will also have a special connection to this passion project and we were delighted to assist with the event display signage.

 

Volunteering with Assistance League of Northern Virginia

This wonderful organization meets monthly at Dominion Virginia Power in Herndon to pack non-perishable food items, which are then delivered to local schools as part of the Weekend Food for Kids program. With 1 in 6 children at risk for hunger in Northern Virginia alone, this is clearly a worthy cause, and with a team of volunteers, they have delivered 13,556 bags of food during the last school year!

Our neighbors in Flannery Court, House of Mercy is a treasure trove of bargains & interesting finds! We have had particular success in repurposing picture frames for various projects in the studio, as well as taking advantage of their 25 cent days on all women’s clothing!!
