Named honorary chairwoman of a new campaign called Faces of Loudoun, Bouweiri hosted the public debut of the initiative on March 1 at Northern Virginia Community College’s Loudoun campus by sharing how she came to be involved.
“Right away, the heart of this campaign spoke to me,” Bouweiri said at the launch. “I think as you learn more about this work, the respectful way it features our neighbors and what we hope to achieve, it will speak to your heart, too.”
Foundation Board President Kristen Langhorne and Executive Director Amy Owen are spearheading the campaign after reviewing a study indicating that Loudoun residents donate less than 2 percent of their income to local charities—in comparison, the U.S. average is 3 percent.
To help give a face to that need, Faces of Loudoun will present the stories of “real people living and working in Loudoun who are experiencing and struggling with ‘real need’,” Owen said.
