Pay It Forward: Project Giveback to feed 500 families for Thanksgiving

The holidays are a time of celebrating and gathering with family and friends for a good times and of course good food. However, not everyone is able to have the same holiday experience because it really depends on a person’s financial situation even to make even the basic things happen. Easterns and Fox 5 DC are always looking for ways to “Pay It Forward” in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community. They got wind of what a woman by the name of Kia Davis was doing and just had to help out such an amazing cause. Davis is at the forefront of an amazing nonprofit organization in Virginia called Project Giveback. Project Giveback is actively working to raise awareness and funds to provide Thanksgiving food boxes to less fortunate and low-income families. The goal for this year has been set and that is to feed 500 families.

Project Giveback works with local schools, churches, and he Fairfax County Department of family services to help those in need. Donations are always welcome as well that is only half the battle. We understand that not everyone is able to give in a monetary way but time itself is also welcome. Volunteers are always needed to help put the food boxes together and to deliver them to the families in need. If there is anyone that would like to donate or find ways to volunteer and be a part of this awesome giveback movement, please click here.

Easterns and Fox 5 DC teamed up to provide a $3,750 check to Davis and Project Giveback to purchase food to feed the families in need. The goal is to ensure that everyone has a happy, healthy, and amazing Thanksgiving.

Easterns Automotive Group has partnered with FOX 5 DC to help honor people in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia community who go above and beyond the call. If you know someone worthy if being recognized, Click here to nominate them.
