FOX 5's Vice President and General Manager Duffy Dyer gives his take on issues in the DC Region.
There is no better time than the holiday season to recognize local leaders who are setting the example for all of us by giving back to their communities.
This past Thursday, the Corporation for National and Community Service honored ten such heroes as "Champions of Change" at a ceremony hosted by the White House.
Notable among these champions Lynn Brantley, the President, CEO and Co-Founder of the Capital Area Food Bank. Lynn has committed the last 31 years of her life to assuring the Capital Area Food Bank accomplishes its mission of feeding those less fortunate people in the Washington metro area.
This year, the Capital Area Food Bank will have distributed 30 million pounds of food to approximately half a million people through some 700 partner agencies.
The staff here at FOX 5 is especially proud to join in the chorus of recognition because we know very well the impact that the Capital Area Food Bank, and Lynn Brantley, has had on the metro area.
Every year for the past 10 years, FOX 5 along with other partners such as Giant, local CBS radio stations, and YRCI, have teamed up with the Capital Area Food Bank to host the Stuff-A-Truck Food Drive. It is due to our involvement in this project that we can see first hand the impact that the food bank has had on people in the DC Region.
Lynn Brantley’s deep and long term commitment to this cause is a shinning example of selfless behavior that we should all take note of during this season of giving.
