Below are a few of the important causes and opportunities Cardinal supports.
KATHERINE HANLEY FAMILY SHELTER
In 2016 Cardinal Girls Lacrosse Club partnered with Fairfax County to sponsor a household goods drive for the Katherine Hanley Family Shelter. The Katherine Hanley Family Shelter provides a safe, temporary home for families, where they can receive help to assess their needs and develop a plan to locate permanent housing as quickly as possible. The shelter is an integral part of the county's 10-year plan to end homelessness. About 20 families live at the Katherine K. Hanley Family Shelter. Most of the families are mothers with school-age children.
Cardinal families donated over 20 medium size boxes of household goods and over 300lbs of supplies to support the Katherine Hanley Family Shelter which provides support for homeless families and those in transition.
First Class Cardinal!
