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.
