DV Sharks Give Back
We recognize we are part of a greater community and want to work to make it better for others!
Pennies for the Pantry
To continue our support of the Haymarket Food Pantry, swim team families participated in a hugely successful "Pennies for the Pantry" campaign. We raised over $1,250, which was enough money for the Haymarket Regional Food Pantry to purchase 5,600 pounds of much-needed food and supplies, going into the holiday season. Thank you to everyone who participated, and a big thank you to Janette Nash for promoting the campaign throughout the summer.
Can at the Curb!
"Can at the Curb!" is a food drive community service to help support the Haymarket Regional Food Pantry. Food donations are dropped off by team members, visiting team members, friends and family. In 2014 the Sharks collected over 2,539 cans to donate to the Haymarket Food Pantry. In addition several team members volunteered at the pantry helping sort and distribute food. To learn about volunteering at the Haymarket Regional Food Pantry, please visit the organization's website.
For more information about the 'Can at the Curb!' program please contact Diane or John Fellenbaum Jr.
To date, the Sharks have donated over $2,400 dollars to the American Heart Association and the Autism Society of Northern VA as a result of the Sharkbite 300 Triathlons that we've organized over the past few years.
