Throughout the month of March, Not Your Average Joe’s, located in Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center, hosted a fundraising event for all of ACTS’ programs. On Tuesdays, the restaurant would donate 20% of the total purchase of a meal (minus tip, tax, and alcohol) to ACTS if its patrons mentioned our organization. This is part of the charitable wing of Not Your Average Joe’s called “Not Your Average Cause.” Local Joe’s restaurants pick charities that serve in their community and give back in a variety of ways.

According to Donald Bloss, Assistant General Manager of the Woodbridge location, “One of our mandates as a company is to give back to the community.  ACTS, being a local organization with a fairly broad reach was a great choice for us.  We were able to meet some new folks, provide them the experience we are known for, and were able to contribute to a worthy Cause at the end of the month. Hopefully, it was a win/win/win for [ACTS], our now mutual friends, and for us.”

At ACTS, we're always appreciative of the help we get from local businesses. Not Your Average Joe’s donation will go a long way in supporting the families we serve here.
