Social Action Brings Joy
On December 25th, a contingent of NVHC members, family and friends brought food, music and cheer to over 100 residents of Reston's Hunters Woods Fellowship house.
Headed by Karen Singer, Karen Forman, and Rikki Epstein, a group of approximately 70 NVHC volunteers served a Lasagne Lunch, baked goodies to share, provided musical talent and offered companionship for senior citizens unable to spend the day with their families.

Many thanks to Ivette Golinsky who cultivated an awesome lineup of young performers (kudos to them all) and coordinated the logistics for our talent show, and Ellen Goldman who had us all singing along (in tune) and tapping our toes to familiar songs for the holidays.Â
Most of all, thanks to our NVHC social action volunteers. Your actions touched the lives of those who needed not just money or food, but time and attention.
