Combined Properties Launches Food Drive

Combined Properties, Incorporated is pleased to announce that it is the host sponsor for a 7-week food drive to benefit food banks in Fairfax County. Combined is partnering with Our Daily Bread, a local, volunteer based, non-profit organization. The drive will take place on Saturdays from 10-4pm, November 3 through December 15, at Turnpike Shopping Center located at Pickett Road & Main Street in the city of Fairfax, VA.

Combined Properties is donating a prime location at the center for the Saturday food collection. The Food Drive will be located in a space next to Blockbuster.

“Combined Properties is firmly committed to the communities in which we have a presence and we believe strongly in giving back to these communities,” said Katherine Roberson, President. “We are excited about this partnership with Our Daily Bread and are glad we are able to lend one of our assets and make a contribution to benefit many people in Fairfax County,” said Roberson.

Different non-profits will staff the location and benefit from the drive. Drop off hours are Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“When Combined Properties first came to us with the idea of donating a store front, we were overwhelmed with the scope of this generous donation. We quickly realized the potential for this project would help Our Daily Bread and similar organizations like us throughout the County!” said Executive Director, Pamela Schadt.

Our Daily Bread advises that in addition to canned food contributions, the food banks also need rice, a staple in every culture, and toiletries – items that are necessary but pricey and cannot be purchased with food stamps. They recommend that neighbors and clubs be solicited to participate.

“More and more of our neighbors need help and meeting these basic needs is a wonderful service to our community” Schadt said.
