Our conversation today with Kaycee Childress, CEO of United Way Northern Shenandoah Valley featured Andrea Cosans, Executive Director for Winchester CCAP

Andrea gave us an overview of the various services they offer the Winchester/Frederick County community and talked about the 20% increase they've seen in need and requests for service. We talked about their "freedge" program and the immediate impact it has had on our community. The "Friendly Neighborhood Freedge, Winchester, VA"  is a community refrigerator that is open 24 hours a day for all to enjoy.  If you are going out of town and you have some fresh produce or items you don't want to go to waste, bring it down and share it with your community! 

We discussed other items that CCAP needs including clothing, and size 6 diapers. Andrea also gave us details for their 3rd Annual Benefit Bike Tour Event happening on Saturday, August 26, 2023 at 8am. 

Andrea explained how important community partnerships are to her organization and expressed gratitude for the impact grants that she's received through United Way Northern Shenandoah Valley.
