Having begun in direct response to the increased hardship brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, Herndon Cares is unique because it helps the hungry and local businesses at the same time.

Herndon Cares now has over 2,000 residents requesting meals and over 130 enthusiastic volunteers making a difference.
Herndon Cares thanks community members for contributing over 140 individual donations and partnering faith communities for providing leadership and financial support. In addition to the First Baptist Church of Herndon, which spearheaded this grassroots movement, faith communities include Christ Fellowship Church, Congregation Beth Emeth, Floris United Methodist Church, Grace Hill Church, Herndon United Methodist Church, Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, Northern Virginia Hebrew Congregation, St. John Neumann Catholic Community, Trinity Presbyterian Church, Unitarian Universalist Church of Reston, and Washington Plaza Baptist Church.
