JENNIFER GARNER STOMPS IN WASHINGTON, DC

Taking a break from her acting duties, Jennifer Garner addressed the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee at the Senate Dirksen Building in Washington, DC today (November 18).

The 38-year-old actress has been the Artist Ambassador for the charity Save the Children for years and has stomped in D.C. a number of times fighting for children’s rights.

Next up? Jennifer will be making a special appearance near her hometown of Charleston, WV tomorrow on behalf of Save The Children.

She will be speaking at Ashton Elementary School in Ashton on Friday to announce six new Save the Children sites in West Virginia.

West Virginia is the 15th state to have a U.S. Save the Children program which will focus on providing impoverished children with quality early education and literacy education, as well as physical activities and proper nutrition.

Jennifer says that she hopes the program will help children reach their potential. “There is such a need here, and there is so much unmet potential right here in West Virginia,” she says. “The cycle of poverty in this state is going on for generations and generations and generations, and we hope we can provide a new energy to help the kids reach their true potential and avoid that.”
