ACTION IN COMMUNITY THROUGH SERVICE OF PRINCE WILLIAM
February 28, 2011

The needs within our community would not be met without the work of this wonderful organization. They provide basic goods and services to a population that is struggling to meet the basic needs of their families. ACTS is there when a family suddenly finds themselves without a home. ACTS is there when someone has been abused and needs a safe place to go. ACTS is there when an individual is feeling suicidal and needs a compassionate listener. ACTS is there for the family who has no money to put food on the table and the next check is two weeks away. ACTS is there to provide child care for low income families so that parents can work and know that their children are in a safe a loving enviornment. ACTS is there... whenever there is a need. Your $5000 donation would allow these types of life-altering works to continue.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

It is humbling to witness the fear and anxiety on the faces of of those in crisis when they walk in the door of the food bank or the emergency shelter. Through the kindness of those that work at ACTS and through the generosity of those that donate resources, those looks change into relief and hope.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would love to see ACTS open a soup kitchen and be able to provide a hot meal several days a week.
