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.
On this #HelpingHands with ABC 7 Santa's Helpers has been donating thousands of toys to Toys for Tots for Christmas and we wanted to contribute to their tireless efforts! Watch the full video to see the special surprise we had for Michelle and Mike Donnelly!
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.
