Help Earthquake Victims zoom

Elected leaders from Northern Virginia announced on March 3 the launch of a local aid program that will collect money to purchase food packages for those impacted by the recent earthquakes overseas.

“Our hearts broke to hear the news of such a profound loss of life in Turkey and Syria following multiple earthquakes. But I’m proud to be a part of a community that rallies together to help those in need both regionally and internationally,” said Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeffrey McKay.

Previously the region’s leaders joined together in 2022 to assist Ukrainian refugees. In response, residents in the NVRC region donated 100 tons of blankets, coats, socks and gloves for distribution.

“Northern Virginia residents and businesses have always stepped up to the plate to help those in need. This time is no different. I urge folks to visit the web site to make a donation to provide food to those families tragically impacted by the earthquake,” said Northern Virginia Regional Commission Chair John T. Chapman.
