Packing Holiday Meals for Families

Packing Thanksgiving meals with She Believes in Me to serve local families.

At Macedon, we strive to be active members of our community. We partner with the She Believes In Me (SBIM) organization regularly. SBIM was founded in 2018 by Renee Gorman, a school counselor and a group of teachers and social workers in Herndon, Virginia. SBIM provides life skills, emotional support, and urgently needed resources to families in Herndon and the surrounding areas. 


Macedon hosted a Turkey donation drive that raised enough funds to serve over 100 families a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. This month Brittney and Monique participated in packing up Thanksgiving meals for local families. They met with the many SBIM volunteers and helped pack their cars with the meals and some extra essentials such as eggs, milk, diapers, etc., for the families. 


“I feel honored to volunteer with an organization like SBIM. Their mission and what they do for these families is life-changing and to help them pack meals, knowing these families will have a wonderful meal on Thanksgiving is heartwarming.” - Brittney, Marketing Coordinator
