During the month of July, the International Cultural Center held a Back to School Drive for 42 needy children at Stepping Stones Shelter in Rockville, Maryland.
On Friday, August 3, 2012, ICC hosted a service-oriented evening, where cross-cultural community members helped pack each needy child a supply bag. Afterwards, participants shared a warm potluck dinner and took turns explaining what they were grateful for.
Our friends from Capitol Area Interfaith Friends (CAIF) joined us and brought lots of new friendly faces.
How many needy students can you help? In 2012, it cost ICC $13 a child to buy necessary school supplies.
