Our Donors

Thank you!

We are so grateful to the numerous Bedford County residents, organizations, churches, and businesses who donate money, new items, and used items each year to our organization! 

Monetary donations are used to purchase new toys, clothes for children and teens, gifts for teens, household items, personal care items, food, and cleaning supplies for our annual Christmas Selection eXpress program. 

 

 

2021 CSX Donations

The Mountain View United Methodist Church in Forest, VA has provided an incredible amount of donations to our CSX program this year.

A food donation helped fill over 125 food boxes for our November distribution to those in need.

Funds were given to fill 225 personal care bags for families who were approved to shop in our CSX program. 

Funds were provided to help towards purchasing hams that will be placed in the December food boxes.

Funds were given to purchase snacks for our seniors and adults with disabilities for our CSX program.

Finally, congregation members were able to donate clothes, toys, household items, and so on, to our CSX program through an Angel Tree that was set up at the church. 

We are incredibly grateful to Mountain View UMC for their generous donations which will help to make our 2021 CSX program a success!

Our fully stocked CSX Food Pantry

FOOD LION gave us a $1,000 check designated for “Food purchases and Nutrition Education.” We used this money for our food pantry.

SAM’s Club donated $1,000. This was used for food items and household goods. 

Bedford County Cares Act, which is funded through the state of Virginia, gave $4,500. This money was designated to assist our low-income Bedford residents with personal protective equipment needs such as cleaning supplies, masks, personal care items, and food. During 2021, our year-round Food Pantry, with the assistance of the remaining funding, will continue to provide items to our Bedford County residents as they seek cleaning supplies, personal care needs, and food for themselves and their family as we all remain cautious while COVID continues to rise in our area.
