Volunteer Spotlight: Jenny Deal, Beach Bags
Posted on 02/08/2019
Each month, dedicated volunteers or community partners will be recognized for the time and talents dedicated to Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS).

Jenny Deal is a volunteer for the division’s Beach Bags program. Each week, she donates her time to sort and pack up to 800 bagged meals and healthy snacks that are provided to disadvantaged VBCPS students.

It was Deal’s son, Zach, who introduced her to the program during a Beach Bags food drive. Once she learned how this program benefits children who may not have enough to eat over weekends and school vacations, Deal said she wanted to help.

“It was eye-opening to find out how many children across the district were impacted by Beach Bags,” explained Deal. “I immediately knew I wanted to be involved.”
