For the last fifteen years, the Shepherd’s Center of Oakton-Vienna (SCOV) has been hosting their Community Thanksgiving Service along with participating congregations. The monies raised from the service offering are then distributed to local charities. This year’s recipients were Our Daily Bread and The Committee for Helping Others. Each charity received $820 from the service collection. Pictured above (l-r) is Christina Garris, representing Our Daily Bread Fairfax; Michelle Scott, Executive Director for SCOV; and George Bergquist representing the Committee for Helping Others. In 2012 SCOV’s services, personal enrichment and volunteer opportunities reached more than 3,000 older adults (50+) in the region. SCOV serves seniors in the Oakton, Vienna, Dunn Loring, Merrifield and portions of Fairfax and Reston areas.
