Loudoun Interfaith BRIDGES is currently accepting applications for the Community Youth Award for Multicultural and Interfaith Leadership, to be presented at the Day of Thanks and Service. Loudoun County residents in grades 9-12 are eligible. To learn more and to download an application, click here.

At “The Day of Thanks and Service” participants will engage the theme of hunger in creative and meaningful ways. All ages, across our diversity, will work together in preparing food for our local food pantry, Loudoun Interfaith Relief, helping to construct a “Quilt of Hope,” and learning from a panel of local experts about local hunger. A self selected group will also have the opportunity to join in the project of preparing our meal, which we have titled “Multicultural Soup.” At the close of the day we will share our Vegetarian “Multicultural Soup,” as well as bread donated by and representative of the many faith communities of Loudoun Interfaith BRIDGES. All ages are encouraged to attend. This is a chance to give back, while gaining new friends.

This program is part of the Building Common Ground: Discussions of Community, Civility and Compassion initiative sponsored by the American Library Association and the Fetzer Institute.

The series is dedicated to building bridges of understanding and respect between diverse religious and ethnic entities. The “common ground” of these faiths will be explored in an effort to foster better understanding and relationships with one another without intent to convert or condemn. This series is presented in partnership with BRIDGES and the Loudoun County Public Library.
