The gratitude that shines in the eyes of persons receiving food, clothing, or other assistance from Koinonia constantly underlines the value and necessity of Koinonia to our community. Koinonia serves the Franconia neighborhood of Fairfax County just outside Alexandria, Virginia. Many families in our neighborhood struggle day by day to meet their needs for food, clothing, and shelter. Middle class families, small businesses, and church congregations that comprise the neighborhood feel for them and routinely channel generous donations of food, clothing, and other gifts through Koinonia, which serves as the intersection between need and neighborly support. Scores of dedicated residents regularly volunteer their service to ensure that needs are met. Volunteers love what they do and are well led by an excellent executive director, assisted by an effective staff of a social worker and office manager. In my volunteer work with Koinonia, I particularly enjoy working with these many big-hearted persons all of whom are motivated by caring and concern. I admire them and am proud of them.
