Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington Provides Increased Service

Story by Alicia Tucker

“Thanks to its great team, an amazing thing happened at Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington (ACSGW) Thursday, May 28,” noted Ken Flemmer, ACSGW’s Executive Director. “We set an all-time, one-day assistance record. We more than doubled the previous record.”

ACSGW assisted 250 families, at their center on Sligo Avenue in Silver Spring, and at two remote locations: New Hampshire Estates Elementary School and Allegheny East Conference’s Brinklow church in Ashton, Md. Volunteers shared almost 12,000 pounds of food with families in need—enough for about 9,000 meals. “Joining together with volunteers and supporters has helped us prevail for our neighbors,” said Flemer. “Our joint effort gave a measure of relief and hope.”
