As we approach summer and go on vacations with our families it is easy to forget about some of the people in our community who are less fortunate. Let's help out the homeless this July in an event I am calling "Christmas in July."
We'll be gathering donations of food and water throughout July and then delivering everything to the homeless in DC at the end of the month.
Christmas giving doesn't need to end in December, it can be a year-long thing!
Special thanks to Mercia Hobson of the Reston and Herndon Connection for covering our "Flower Power" event on Mother's Day! Take a look at the article in the link below or by simply clicking the picture!

I took a hike today with a couple great friends. It was quite the journey. What we originally expected to be a 5 mile hike turned into a 13+ miles! But it was totally worth it especially when we got to the top and could see miles in the distance and birds flying below us.
Life is a journey, and you can take some wrong turns here and there, but if you stay the course, take it one step at a time, work hard, and help out others along the way you'll get t...
