Thank You Mr. Bob

Bob at Southlakes Safeway is known by everyone who shops there for his smile, help, and overall amazing disposition. He has worked for Safeway for over 40 years! (Hunters Woods & Southlakes Safeways) He even has lollipops for all the kids and some "kids" who are now in their 40s have never known Safeway without Mr.Bob. Most regular shoppers always wait for his register even when other cashiers are open.  

We are so sad that he is retiring, but are taking donations to give him a retirement "thank- you" gift from his community.

Please donate and/or give your time by telling your neighbors about this campaign. We are using the money as a gift from all Bob's Southlakes shoppers to help him during his retirement.

<<<<<Recognition for this effort goes to "Nextdoor" neighbors Kevin Jacks of WakeTanbark and Juan Salazar of Solaridge.>>>>
<<Also recognition to Mary Prochnow of Reston for contacting NBC Washington! This story made it to local news because of her (and maybe others who called) PLUS all the contributions on the public campaign page.>>>

What a community of support we have in Reston, VA!!
