Civil Air Patrol’s Virginia Wing is supporting Prince William County’s distribution of necessary resources having been tasked recently at the request of Prince William County and Meals on Wheels.
As part of a growing connection with Prince William County’s COVID-response efforts, three senior members and nine cadets assisted Manassas Senior Center staff and Prince William Parks and Recreation in the transfer of food supplies to prepare for distribution to the public
The team provided additional aid in unloading and store packages for more than 1,500 meals in Woodbridge.
Additional support is expected as part of growing relations with county support systems throughout Virginia and relief efforts continue in food distribution centers, according to a news release.
