Action in Community Through Service (ACTS) to Expand Food Pantry with Help from Loveless Porter

Loveless Porter Architects has been a long-time supporter of Action in Community Through Service (ACTS) Hunger Prevention Center by donating time and services to their multitude of community programs.

Our involvement started with expanding the food pantry, to further assisting in expanding again to a newly purchased building.

The Hunger Prevention Center has expanded allowing them to help even more families struggling to put food on the table. Clients are eligible to obtain food assistance through the ACTS Hunger Prevention Center once per month. Food is distributed on a walk-in basis. No appointment is needed.

The month after the new Center opened, the number of families receiving food assistance jumped from 650 to 900 for a total of 7,587 households (a 4% increase).  Currently, they provide over 75,000 pounds of food to over 2,000 people every month!

We most recently assisted ACTS in the refacing, renovating, and rebranding the thrift store newly named “Second ACTS”.

All donations to ACTS directly benefit your local community. Everything you donate will create new opportunities for local people looking to find a job, get their lives back on track, or support their families. Donations are 100% tax-deductible and receipts are available upon request.

If you have something to donate, come see the drop-off location for all donations at the new Thrift Store Donation Center located one block south of the store on Main St. in Dumfries.
