While the media loves to highlight the crazy, chaotic, and negative stories, it’s important to remember the incredible good that happens in communities as well. This is true of the Prince William Co. Republican Committee. [read_more]While there was a glitch that is being worked out, the committee ran a high turnout mass meeting, participated in a model firehouse primary in the 10th District, and is the leader in the Commonwealth in community outreach.
As Vice Chairman, D.J. Jordan has lead the committee in numerous community outreach projects which saw the PWC GOP highlighted at the RPV Advance for its work. While conservatives are incredibly generous caring people, it is important for the public to see that the party itself cares. With over a dozen events last year, Republicans in Prince William County are beginning to turn that narrative.
This year the Bull Run Republican Women’s club are using their annual fashion show to kick of the PWC GOP Community Service Initiative. The fashion show and luncheon will be used to collect donations for the B.A.R.N. Transitional Housing in Bristow which helps women and their children with transitional housing following a crisis. I hope many in the county and area will join in, and continue following Prince William’s leadership in this important area.

Bull Run Republican Women’s Club To Host Fashion Show, Collect Donations for BARN Transitional Housing
Event Kicks Off PWC GOP 2015 Community Service Initiative
WOODBRIDGE, VA – The Bull Run Republican Women’s Club will host its 32nd annual Fashion Show Luncheon and collect donations to benefit the B.A.R.N Transitional Housing charity in Bristow. The annual tradition will also be a part of the Prince William County Republican 2015 Community Service Initiative. B.A.R.N Transitional Housing provides homeless women and their children with transitional housing and services following a family crisis.
The Women’s Club will collect donations of new or gently used women’s business clothing at the next monthly PWC GOP meeting on Monday, March 23, 7:30pm at Benton Middle School. The Fashion Show will be held on Saturday, April 11 at Evergreen Country Club in Haymarket. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased by contacting Debbie Bowers at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bull Run Republican Women’s Club will present a check and clothing donations to B.A.R.N at the event.
“Our annual fashion show and luncheon is not only fun, it helps a great cause,” said Bull Run Republican Women’s Club President Dottie Miller. “It’s important to us to help our fellow Prince William neighbors who may be facing a family crisis. Our party is full of compassionate women who want to be a blessing to others.”
“I have enjoyed this fashion show for many years, and I have appreciated this great charity,” said Brentsville Supervisor Jeanine Lawson. “The B.A.R.N Transitional Housing charity is an important partner in our County for fighting homelessness and domestic abuse. We are pleased to support this work in any way possible.”
“It’s important to me that the Prince William GOP do more than just elections and campaigns – we want to make an impact in the community,” said Prince William Republican Committee Chairman Bill Card. “As these women seek to become self-sufficient for themselves and their children, Prince William Republicans want to help by providing a little support.”
In 2014, the Prince William County Republican Committee conducted its first Community Service Initiative to serve the residents of the County. The Initiative, led by Vice Chairman D.J. Jordan, included ten service projects, including food bank collections, events to support veterans, and an August school supply drive, among many others. The Republicans partnered with various Prince William County charities like Streetlight Ministries in Woodbridge, SERVE, Inc in Manassas, the Prince William County Education Foundation (SPARK), the Bull Run Wounded Warrior Retreat in Haymarket, and ACTS Homeless Shelter in Dumfries. Any Prince William County resident can participate in this Initiative no matter what their political affiliation is.
