McLean, VA - This Saturday, June 11, Delegate Comstock will join the Rotary Club for the "Stop Hunger Now" Event at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in McLean.

The humanitarian effort will benefit Stop Hunger Now, an international hunger relief organizationthat coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid to countries around the world. More than 25,000 people die of hunger-related causes every day, according to Stop Hunger Now.

McLean Rotary, along with the Rotary Clubs of Tysons Corner and Dunn Loring, will bring together local schools, service organizations, houses of worship and businesses to participate in a one-day, meal-packaging event on June 11 at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in McLean.  The McLean Club is looking for 600 volunteers to help package 150,000 meals and raise at least $37,500 to underwrite the cost of the meals.

The local Rotary Clubs will be joined by Platinum sponsor Deloitte and Gold sponsor West Financial Services as well as McLean and Langley High Schools, The Potomac School and American Legion Post 270. Several local houses of worship also will be participating, including Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (McLean), Temple Rodef Shalom and the Islamic Community of McLean.
