Connolly to Bag Groceries to Support Breast Cancer Research

This was sent to us by the Office of Congressman Gerald E. Connolly:

FAIRFAX – For the third year in a row, Congressman Gerry Connolly will be supporting breast cancer awareness and research as a “celebrity bagger” at a local grocery store.  Connolly will begin bagging groceries at 3 pm on Monday (October 11) at the Nutley Street Safeway in the Pam Am Shopping Center.

Connolly has been a staunch supporter of efforts to raise awareness and increase research into preventing and curing breast cancer, which strikes one-in-three households in the United States.  One of Connolly’s first pieces of legislation to pass in Congress was a House Resolution on the disease.

Media is invited to join Connolly, wearing a standard-issue grocer’s apron, as he greets customers, bags their groceries, and loads them into their carts.
