Representatives from local organizations and businesses provide curbside pizza pickup for area students

A community partnership between PWCS, SPARK, the Education Foundation for Prince William County Public Schools, the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., (NCBW), Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism (DPRT), and Clarence Wright, CEO of Creative Concepts and Advancements (CCAA) Events, facilitated pizza dinners for the students and families of Graham Park and Rippon Middle Schools.

Through this unified community effort, families were provided a meal during this unprecedented difficult time. Pizza distribution occurred each Tuesday and Thursday evening during the month of May. At each distribution site, different volunteers from community organizations such as, the Prince William County Chapter of NCBW, Inc., CCAA Events, DPRT, PWCS, and SPARK, executed a successful collaboration to serve students and families via curbside pick-up.

Other community members who brought about this remarkable initiative to fruition include, William G. Bixby, associate superintendent for PWCS middle schools, PWCS school principals and staff, Guy Lambert of WPGC 95.5, and Rodney Johnson of Journey Executive Travel Services.
