Thanksgiving is three weeks away and a local church and salon have timed up to help out Bread for the City, DC’s largest food pantry. Foundry United Methodist Church and Logan 14 Aveda Lifestyle Salon~Spa have a three-week campaign to expand Foundry’s annual food drive to benefit Bread for the City. The church and the salon will solicit canned goods, non-perishable food items and monetary donations for the food drive, “Neighbors Coming Together to Fight Hunger in the Nation’s Capital.” Contributions can be made through Thanksgiving Day.

Bring food donations to Logan 14 Aveda Lifestyle Salon~Spa at 1314-B 14th Street NW during business hours through Wednesday, November 23. You may also donate during the Thanksgiving Day Worship Service at 10 am on Thursday, November 24 in Foundry’s chapel at 1500 16th Street NW. Get more information about the food drive on Facebook.

“Foundry is once again committed to the food drive at our annual Thanksgiving Day service,” says Foundry’s Director of Challenging Study Ministries, the Reverend Theresa S. Thames. “But this year we’re incredibly grateful and excited to have a local business joining forces with us to expand the food drive and allow people to donate food seven days a week throughout the month of November, not just at the Thanksgiving Day service.”

Wendi Dofflemyer, manager at Logan 14 Salon says, “As a community-based, full-service salon and spa, we value our customers, and we care about making our community a better place.”

Foundry United Methodist Church was voted “Best Place of Worship” by readers of the Washington Blade in their recent “Best of Gay D.C. 2011” reader poll.
