Unity in Community Food and Fund Drive

Presented by The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank

Co-sponsored by Virginia Estates

August 7 – August 14


This week marks The Blue Ridge Area Food Banks 40th year of service in communities throughout central and western Virginia. Virginia Estates is proud to announce that we are working with The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank to help provide 400,000 meals to people in need in Virginia. We’d love for you to help too!

There are two ways you can help-

  1. Make a financial gift online between August 7 and August 14, and Virginia Estates will match your donation $1 for $1
  2. Drop off non-perishable food donations outside your local Blue Ridge Area Food Bank branch on Friday, August 13 or Saturday, August 14 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Click here to see our locations, or see the list below.

Working together in unity, we can realize a future where everyone has enough to eat.
