The holiday food drives are still running! There is still time for you or your company to run a food drive for the Holidays. There are many families in our community who are not fortunate enough to have a Holiday meal and we need YOUR help! We will continue to run food drives the entire month of November and part of December for Christmas food for those in need. All contributions stay local and meet the needs of local families. Last year we were able to serve 1250 individuals, approximately 750 families with food for the holidays and with your help we will be able to serve just as many this year.
If you would be interested in volunteering one of the following dates, we are looking for 2-8 volunteers for each shift at the Christiansburg Kroger to collect food for our Holiday Food Drive.
