This year, we're teaming up with Interfaith Works to help with their Back to School Supply Drive! All items can be dropped off to the donation bin at Customer Service! 

This year’s Annual School Supplies Drive will provide new backpacks and school supplies to 2,500 students who want to start the 2013-2014 school year ready to learn. For many families in Montgomery County, the cost of rent, food, utilities, and $50 for school supplies for each of their children is just too much. You can help these students go back to school, ready to start a successful year.

 

Top 5 items needed:

  • Backpacks (K-12)
  • Packages of lined filler paper
  • Tab dividers
  • 2-pocket folders
  • Pencil pouches

Other needed items:

1-subject notebooks, composition books, large pink erasers, packages of big markers, pens (red and black), scissors (blunt tip and pointed tip), rulers, pencil boxes, boxes of colored pencils

This year, we're teamiing up with Interfaith Works to help with their Back to School Supply Drive!

Beer School-Foggy Ridge Cider Session
Tuesday, September 2nd
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Whole Foods Vienna Pub, $5

"Foggy Ridge Cider is the first cidery south of MA to focus full time on growing heirloom cider apples and making artisan cider. Foggy Ridge grows over 30 cider apple varieties, including many English and Colonial American varieties not widely grown in Va. Apples like Hewe's Crab (grown by Thomas Jefferson for cider at Monticello), Ashmead's Kernel, Harrison (a famous colonial cider apple), Tremlett's Bitter and Dabinett are blended into 4 sparkling ciders and 1 apple port. Foggy Ridge Cider is farm cider-we work hard to translate the special flavors and aromas of real cider apples into a fermented cider. This cider is crisp, elegant and full of flavor with no added sugar, flavorings like oak, hops or other fruit juices. Diane Flynt, owner, has been a trailblazer in the cider indusrty and Foggy Ridge Cider is distributed in 10 states plus DC."

Join us for a great cider class!
