Hurray for fundraising for Cancer awareness and research. Could I ask that you consider includingRead More Lung Cancer Alliance in your fundraising efforts? If not them then one of the other organizations dedicated to Lung Cancer? The survivial rate of Breast Cancer has increased drastically in the last 40 years due to efforts such as those of the Susan G Komen foundation. How about giving the underdog cancer, Lung Cancer a spin for awarness and fund raising? Let's see if we can also eradicate the words Lung Cancer from our vocabulary. Actually, we need to get to a place where when someone says Cancer we immediately think astrological sign, not gasp and say: where? who? no. I am so sorry.

I am considering getting involved in a lung cancer fundraising event. I've looked at the LCARead More website and am considering the options. Thanks for bringing your organization to my attention. jalobdell

This was an outstanding effort on part of the ecumenical effort to support Martha's Table under theRead More leadership of Sydenstricker United Methodist Church. The previous high water mark for making sandwiches occurred on 4th Jul 2001 when the faith community came together and made 4,200 sandwiches. Praise the Lord in all His goodness and the blessings He has bestowed on us. Ron Edwards, Chair SUMC Missions Committee

Sorry to say, this is not a new item in all of our lives. Way back about 1956, Lorton ElementaryRead More and the schools in Woodbridge had large problems with the amount of available food for the children. Somehow we skipped over the parents - but the need was just a dire. The Masons provided free milk to the children. Their first idea was to provide a free meal to these same children for Thanksgiving. It was re-worked to provide free lunches for those children who would otherwise not eat. I think you know that the problem does not grow less, it grows more. We are still trying to feed others. "The poor ye shall have with you always" and we will. LCAC is trying. A number of places in at least where we know exist, to provide. A continuing frustrating task. It will not go away, ever!!

And with more people in Lorton, it looks like a growing problem. Thanks Sally!

Okay, so LCAC needs donations. Yet, nowhere in the article does it mention where or how to donateRead More or their hours of operation. Put the address, a phone number, hours of operations, etc. at the end so as to make it very easy for interested parties, like myself, to donate. Thanks.
