 Ride On Celebrates 25th Year of Food Donation Program

Montgomery County's Ride On bus system is celebrating their 25th annual "Give and Ride" program all this week.  From April 22 to April 28, passengers can enjoy a free ride in exchange for a non-perishable food item or children's item such as disposable diapers, formula, baby or toddler food and juice. Plastic containers are preferred.

During the "Give and Ride" promotion, food collection bags will be placed near the fare boxes on all Ride On buses. Riders using free shuttles and other transit services can participate by bringing their donations to a Ride On bus. 

Food donations, will be valued at the regular fare rate of $1.70. Passengers who transfer buses will need an additional food donation to ride free on the second bus.

All donated food will be distributed to those in need by the Manna Food Center,  a non-profit organization that distributes food to 3,000 hungry families a month in Montgomery County.

Attn NoVA/DC/MD High School Students + Parents :: Prom Confidence Event + Giveaway on March 24th

On Saturday, March 24, local merchants and activists for young people will come together to make some prom dreams come true for teenagers in Northern Virginia, D.C., and Maryland. The group previously hosted makeovers with local teens, including the one featured in the video above of Nailah Phillips, a sophomore at Heritage HIgh School in Leesburg. Perhaps the best part about these makeovers is that the team bases its prom and homecoming events not only on making over the outside, but on reminding teens first, to see and appreciate their strengths, and second, to know that each is truly special.
