Our Donors

Thank you!

We are so grateful to the numerous Bedford County residents, organizations, churches, and businesses who contributed to the Christmas Station for our December 2020 Christmas Selection eXpress (CSX) event.

Money that was donated was used to purchase new toys, clothes for children and teens, gifts for teens, household items, personal care items, food, and cleaning supplies. In addition to money, numerous items were also purchased and donated by the groups listed above.

Because of the generosity of so many people, we were able to serve 234 Bedford County households that included 113 senior citizens and adults with disabilities, and 394 children.

Below are some names of individuals and organizations that donated money in the form of grants. We are so grateful for their contributions!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A big thank you to the Bedford Virginia Furniture Market for their support of BCCS! BVFM Manager Robert Younger Jr. presented a $650 check to board co-president, Patty Brown. Each time an employee sold a piece of furniture on “Giving Tuesday”, $50 was donated to BCCS.  

 

 

 

The Distribution Committee of the Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation approved a grant for BCCS in the amount of $7,952 from the Coleman Family Fund and the Calvin and Virginia Cox Fund. This foundation, which serves the city of Lynchburg and the counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, and Campbell, has supported BCCS for many years.

One-fourth of the funds will be used to purchase back to school shoes for low-income students. 

One-half of the funds will be used to maintain an adequate supply of food, paper products, cleaning items, and personal care items for our year-round pantry.

One-fourth of the funds will be applied to the loan for our building annex.

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.

Bedford Community Health Foundation donated $1,000, designated to provide food for our pantry and personal care items during the COVID-19 pandemic and our CSX event.
