Message From the PTA President

When we have been able to get outside on bike rides and walk; it’s been so great to see all the Sunshine that people have hung at their houses. Keep posting pictures on our Facebook page of your Sunshine too. Remember we are all walking on Sunshine when we see one at a fellow Louise Archer families house.

Update on specific Louise Archer needs:

Thank you to all that have donated we have provided about $500 worth of gift cards to families in our community. However we realize this is going to be an ongoing effort. We have now partnered with an extraordinary effort through the non-profit called “Belong!” which has partnered with several churches in Vienna to help support vulnerable families that have been affected by this pandemic. These funds will help support families in our pyramid, specifically Madison, Cunningham Park, Marshall Rd and Louise Archer. Through our partnership with Belong! gift cards will be distributed weekly.

Going forward we are going to have two ways you can give. Gift cards can continue to be dropped off at my house in the box on my front porch at 343 Orchard St. NW, Vienna, VA 22180 and we will get them to Belong! For the weekly distribution to our families. Or you can now choose to make a monetary donation through Belong!.

To contribute to Belong!- Click on the Belong link below. Choose from the drop down menu once you click “Vienna Students Food Initiative.”
When you put in your amount, in the Address field- instead of the donor’s street address, write in your school (Louise Archer). The staff will be able to track all funds this way to ensure that these funds are used for the listed school only.
