Letter: Rachel Roberts, Leesburg

Editor: While in this season of Thanksgiving, I would like to thank my family, friends, neighbors, business owners and those I’ve yet to meet for their generous support of my Edwards Ferry Road flower stand. They enabled me to donate $11,648 to our local food pantry, Loudoun Interfaith Relief.

This organization is near and dear to my heart, as I have volunteered weekly for many years. Because of this, I have first-hand knowledge of our clients’ appreciation and the need for food in our county. For every dollar donated to LIR, 90 cents goes to providing food for those in need.

Please continue to keep LIR in mind as you enjoy your holidays, and remember that hunger knows no holiday. So many are dependent on us, and we want them to know we care.

Again, many thanks for enjoying my flowers. Gardens provide food in many ways!

Rachel Roberts, Leesburg
