COVID-19 hasn’t kept the Agape Love In Action community from serving with its hands and hearts. And, it won’t keep ALIA from celebrating those who help make communities better.
In its first virtual awards celebration, ALIA will observe its sixth year of honoring those who serve and those who rise to meet life’s challenges. On Saturday, June 20, beginning at 9:00 a.m., Manassas Mayor Hal Parrish, two-term Congresswoman Barbara Comstock, former Washington Redskins quarterback Doug Williams and former interim Executive Secretary and former President of Lott Carey Foreign Mission Society will discuss their experiences working with ALIA.
NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” Season 14 competitors Voices of Service will grace the virtual stage with music. General John Nicholson of the PenFed Foundation will present the Veteran Icon of the Year to Brigadier General Charles Edward McGee.
ALIA’s mission includes:
- Thousands of Hope in a Bag donations (food, clothing and hygiene items)
- Hundreds of thousands of dollars raised and donated to support veterans
- Hundreds of senior citizens given free computer literacy training and computers through the “Wisdom Meets Technology” program, serving students ranging in age from 62 to 89
