Thank you to the Bluemont Concert Series for hosting us at the Sept. 9th show in Middleburg. We were happy to have tables alongside other organizations that are doing good for the community!
Seven Loaves is SO THANKFUL to have the Young Men's Service League come help at the Pantry throughout the summer and school year! Mothers and Sons are eager to assist where they can and treat our Volunteers and Patrons with the upmost respect. Thank you, YMSL, for your wonderful service here at Seven Loaves!
Young Men's Service League (YMSL) is a non-profit organization that was founded in Plano, Texas in 2001. Its mission is to encourage high school-age boys to volunteer with their mothers in the local community during their four years of high school. It promotes strong mother-son relationships at a time when boys are becoming more independent, and it fosters a sense of "giving back" to the community- an important trait to develop as these boys become young men. Each "class" (freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior) of the "Loudoun South" local chapter is made up of 25 boys and their mothers. Therefore, at any given time, there are approximately 200 people involved in the local chapter. Both moms and high school boys assist the YMSL chapter by having specific jobs within the organization. This also helps teach leadership and responsibility to the boys. The "Loudoun South" YMSL chapter has almost 20 philanthropies that it assists, serves, and supports, including both Seven Loaves and the Dulles South Food Pantry, Honor Flight, Share House, The Adler Center for Caring, Treasure Hound, Special Olympics, Toys for Tots, Wreaths Across America, Virginia Waterways, and Sprout Therapeutic Riding Center. Mothers and sons are each required to volunteer at least 20 hours per year, in addition to fulfilling their roles within the organization.
