AT&T Pioneers in Virginia recently dropped off 15 boxes of turkey day goodies to the families staying at the Katherine K. Hanley Family Shelter, a safe, temporary residence for homeless neighbors in Fairfax County. The shelter currently serves 24 families with children under 18.
The containers were loaded with all the holiday favorites and were the first of several drop offs in the region.
AT&T Pioneers is a network of volunteers who effect immediate, tangible change in local communities. Today, the organization is the world’s largest group of industry-specific employees and retirees dedicated to community service.
The Pioneers started in 1911 with just 734 members including Alexander Graham Bell. Today the Pioneers volunteer more than 15 million hours every year responding to the needs of their communities.
