Pro Football Hall of Famer Darrell Green is at it Again 

Supporting The Catch A Meal Community Giveaway  

Darrell Green is bringing awareness and support to those impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic.  As a 38-year resident of the Greater Washington area he has seen firsthand how many in the community have found it difficult to feed and clothe their families. On Saturday, February 27, 2021 he will support The Catch A Meal Community Giveaway in his own backyard of Loudoun County at Sugarland Elementary School from 10:00am-noon.  The Catch A Meal Program was created to partner with community organizations and leaders to provide for those in need. Since 1988 Darrell Green has founded and supported programming ranging from youth development, elderly care, women and children sheltering, prison rehabilitation, job placement and spiritual development. “Now is the time for everyone with the ability to support this event to get involved. This event gives us all an opportunity to participate in ensuring that the mere necessities are provided to all that have been economically impacted” says Green.

As a result of the pandemic crisis the number of people seeking assistance from local food banks and organizations has increased. Unfortunately, the number of donations to these organizations has drastically decreased.  Several community organizations have come together to ensure that families have an opportunity to receive items that are critically needed. During the event this Saturday, families will have access to coats, diapers, wipes, rash cream, blankets, toys, hygiene items, and boxed food.  This will have a significant impact on the Sterling Virginia community.  When April Taylor, Founder of The Catch A Meal Program called “I immediately committed to this effort, I was surprised when she shared that all she needed was a little time, a caring heart, and just a little bit of muscle. So, I am asking all of you to join me as we support The Catch A Meal Community Giveaway. Come break a sweat and put a smile on the faces of families.” says Green. “The pandemic has presented many unfamiliar challenges, The Catch A Meal Program Giveaways is a solution for providing food and goods to people who have lost their jobs, parents who need help feeding their kids and anyone else who is in need,” said Taylor.

In accordance with local and CDC guidelines, all items will be available to people in vehicles via a drive-through system and monitored walk-up designated area that allows for strict social distancing. People will need to remain in their vehicles as volunteers load the items into their vehicles. While supplies last, and no ID will be required to receive items during this event.

The Catch A Meal Community Giveaway is in partnership with Loudon County Board SupervisorsDarrell GreenPrince Williams Food RescueSugarland Elementary SchoolFairfax County Police Departments Victim Services DivisionMoms on DemandThe SVE Firm, and The Wyoming Black 14.
