Last week, Bashir Hooper of the D.C. United Academy was recognized by the County of Gainsville, Virginia for his commitment to serving his community. Hooper is a regular volunteer with the Haymarket Regional Food Pantry, which strives to eliminate hunger by providing food to those in need.

The event, which was hosted by Gainesville County Supervisor Pete Candland, named the Food Pantry the Heroes of Gainsville, and the award was received by Pam Stutz, the Haymarket Food Pantry Executive and Founder and Bashir Hooper.
