Big Things are Happening...

Extra! Extra! Read all about it...

The Good News Community Kitchen is growing and we are so excited about the direction of the organization. We will begin implementing programs and community events in Columbia, SC AND Charlotte, NC! 

Our first initiative with both locations consist of providing school supplies to our future leaders. We are accepting monetary donations ($20) to secure backpacks from a specific vendor along with supplies to stuff in the backpacks for Columbia, SC and we are accepting college ruled paper, blue/black/red pens, No. 2 pencils and two-pocket folders for West Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, NC. 

Mrs. Tierra Allen chairs both locations and will serve as the point of contact for events in both areas. As our volunteer networks grow, our points of contacts will grow as well!

All residents interested in volunteering must submit an application via email or directly to Mrs. Allen.

Monetary contribution may be made online our website. Please indicate "SC or NC Chapter" in the notes when submitting online. Visit our home page to make a donation today!

A TGNCK Patch for Girl Scouts Nation's Capital!

Guess what? We now offer a patch for all Girl Scouts interested in fighting hunger! Troops may coordinate their own event and/or participate in currently planned events to earn their very own TGNCK Hunger Relief patch. I am truly excited about this huge step for us and most importantly I'm thankful for having a great servitude-relationship with the Girl Scouts Nation's Capital. Feel free to contact us via to begin coordinating your outreach event TODAY!

Ribbon Cutting Time!

We did it! On August 10, 2016, the Lake Ridge Rotary Club sponsored our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, hosted by The Prince William County Chamber of Commerce! The entire day was filled with a million emotions. I feared a small turnout, but would have still been completely appreciative of anyone who decided to take time out of their schedule to come down and support our event. We had well over 45 guests to attend our ceremony. Our office was filled with laughter, words of encouragement, delicious food provided by The Blue Arbor Café, Firebirds, and Not Your Average Joes. Honorable Gerald Connolly, Delegate Richard Anderson and Chairman Gerald Wittman sent representatives, Occoquan District Supervisor Mrs. Ruth Anderson, Occoquan Mayor Elizabeth Quist, Occoquan Events and Community Development Director Mrs. Donna Brown, The Lake Ridge and Woodbridge Rotary Club, Prince William County Chamber of Commerce, The Northern Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce, Woodbridge High School JROTC leadership, Omega Psi Phi Pi Lambda Lambda Chapter, Game 7 RIders and King's Knights Motor Club, The Law Offices of Sheyna Nicole Burt, PLC and Stratford University were all in attendance. What's Up Woodbridge even conducted an interview (in front of EVERYONE...SO NERVOUS). This was by far one of the best nights of my life. The Town of Occoquan gave us a warm welcoming! I am more than excited, eager and ready to rebuild and strengthen my community!
