Volunteers of America Chesapeake's President and CEO, Russ Snyder, introduces honoree Chris Zimmerman.

The Third Annual Harvest for Hope event was held Saturday, Oct. 20 at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association conference center. Honorees included state Sen. Barbara Favola, County Board member Chris Zimmerman, Craig Pascal of BB&T Bank, Mount Zion Baptist Church and Mount Olive Baptist Church.

Funds raised will go toward programs addressing homelessness and substance-abuse recovery at the Volunteers of America Residential Program Center and allow the nonprofit to continue its work to keep Arlington County in the 2.5% Club — as one of the 15 communities in the nation to meet homelessness reduction targets to eliminate homelessness by 2016.
