For many, the holiday season means lots of family time spent together enjoying food and presents. For many local families; however, that will not be the case.
Currently 157,000 people in Southwest Virginia need help putting food on the table. The Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) helps feed southwest Virginia’s hungry through a network of more than 400 food pantries. Last year more than 239,500 pounds of fresh produce was distributed. The need is great and ever growing.
The CVC gives Virginia Tech employees the opportunity to support more than 1,300 participating charities. At least $0.75 of every dollar donated goes directly to the program services.
To find how much money has been raised to date, visit the CVC website.
