Community members are invited to participate in a food and toy drive hosted by Mission of Love Charities Inc., a Capitol Heights-based nonprofit dedicated to serving underprivileged and impoverished residents across the Washington, D.C., region.
Residents are asked to bring unwrapped toys and nonperishable food to the building located at 6180 Old Central Ave., Capitol Heights.
Willie Parker, warehouse supervisor for Mission of Love Charities, said the program is important to families in need.
“We just wanted to make sure that the youngsters have winter stuff and toys to play with,” Parker said.
Mission of Love Charities is also hosting a Business Mitten Mixer 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Dec. 12 at FedEx Field at 1600 Fedex Way in Landover. Residents are asked to bring winter gear, nonperishable food and unwrapped toys for distribution to families in need.
