Sponsored by former City Councilman Frank Fannon, donations to the clothing and food drive will support the ALIVE! food bank, Carpenter’s Shelter and Christ House.
“Despite the ice storm and 29-degree temperatures, people came out to support our local charities,” said Fannon following last year’s event, which also collected more than $2,600 in donations.
The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the parking lot at the corner of Duke and S. Henry streets. For more information, contact Frank Fannon at 703-861-1864 or Frank.Fannon@gmail.com.
“I hope people will come out and join us for coffee and donuts and to support those in need throughout Alexandria,” Fannon said.
