Men from Fairfax and Loudoun volunteered together and managed the constant traffic of shopping carts as 50,000 pounds of non-perishable groceries were loaded into vehicles of families in need from Sterling, Ashburn and Herndon. Christ the Redeemer Catholic processed 55 families an hour, totaling 397 carts between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Working in parallel, Trinity Presbyterian in Herndon handled 404 grocery carts. Seventy-three walk-in families were served at the end of the day.
