Complete the Circle Event and FoodRaiser
Complete the Circle 2014
On Sunday, November 9, more than one thousand community members came together at Fairfax High School and contributed more than 8,300 pounds of food and a total of $15,300 worth of food, gift card and cash donations to help feed our struggling neighbors in the Fairfax County area. Thank you to everyone who helped us Complete the Circle!
“Complete the Circle,” an exciting family-oriented community service project and Food Drive, brought together more than 1,000 community members from all over the region to benefit our neighbors in need. On the afternoon of Sunday, November 9, our inspirational design (above) was created as a “living painting” on the practice field at Fairfax High School, using hundreds of community members dressed in our event T-shirts that “colored” the image. It was then photographed from 80 feet above by artist Daniel Dancer of Art for the Sky. Participants were asked to make a $5 donation for their Complete the Circle T-shirt. Our Complete the Circle image and event day were intended to convey unity and giving locally with food staples and other household necessities that meet the basic needs of our community members. Participants were asked to bring three or more non-perishable food items and/or household necessities, that were incorporated into the photo as the outer circle rim of our living painting – so that literally we all “completed the circle” of giving to provide help and hope to local families and children facing hunger.

Stay Tuned! The video will be out soon! All participants will receive a postcard of the Art for the Sky photo as a memento of the occasion.
A HUGE THANK YOU to all of our teams and participants. We broke an attendance record with more than 1,000 people in attendance this year!
A VERY HEARTY THANK YOU to our event Sponsors, Supporters and Teams!
