Lorton Community Action Center saw a need in the face of the pandemic and wanted families to have a wonderful holiday season. They were committed to providing food, toys, and resources to those in the community who needed them the most. They worked tirelessly to gather donations to distribute, and we had a secret surprise on this Pay It forward with Fox 5.
In October, 82-year-old veteran, affectionately known as Mr. Eddie, lost his home of 40 years in a fire, forcing him to start over. On this Pay It Forward with Fox 5, we had a special surprise for him and his wife.
Soles4Souls is an organization that collects unwanted shoes and puts them to good use for those in need. On this #PayItForward with Fox 5 we were inspired by their efforts so we donated $500 worth of shoes to their cause. We also purchased $1500 worth of foot soap from botanical-based line Naturally London to give to first responders and hospital staff.
