The bike rodeo turned out to be very successful. We had a turn out of around 50 kids who had fun riding their bikes through obstacle courses and the free ride area in the open parking lot. We had drawings and gave away bikes, razor scooters and skateboards. We hopefully can do another in the spring of 2018. ... See MoreSee Less

FINAL HURRICANE RELIEF DONATIONS ON THE WAY TO FLORIDA…….

SHERIFF’S OFFICE DONATION DROP OFF IS NOW CLOSED

Kevin and Brian left early this morning on our final hurricane relief journey to Florida. This all began with a volunteer mission to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas on August 28. For one month we have collected donations from the citizens of Greene and surrounding counties. We had no idea when we began that the response from the community would be of this magnitude, leading to 3 large fully loaded vehicles to Texas and 3 large fully loaded vehicles to Florida.
We want to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped… the citizens who took their time to gather and drop off donations, and also the citizens who donated money towards travel and expenses in delivering the donations to Texas and Florida. We would also like to give thanks to those who volunteered their time, Department of Social Services, Dave Fafara (Owner of Shenandoah Joe’s), Three Notched Brewery and University of Virginia.

We would like to give special thanks to Matthew Hardin who volunteered his time and made donations to our drive, Andrew Wilder and Frank Morris who not only volunteered their time and donated to the cause but also provided food to feed the volunteers and Marie Durrer who donated her time, donations to the drive, the use of her 30 foot trailer for storage and food to feed the volunteers.

Thank you all for being there during this time of need.

We will be leaving again in the next couple of days with our donations for Hurricane relief. This is probably the last trip we will be making. When we first started this, we had no idea we could keep it going this long and we also had no idea that we could help in such a big way. This community has come together in a way that is a true blessing and we're proud to be a part of it. Thank you!

We are still collecting and welcome any donations you want to add. Still no clothing or shoes please.

A third trip to Hurricane Harvey began on Wednesday morning. 2 Penske trucks fully loaded. While in route to Texas, we received a phone call from them asking us to go to Florida instead. They stated that there were areas in Florida that were in desperate need of drinking water and food. We did as they asked and headed to Florida. The first drop in Key Largo has been made and our trucks are heading further south where we understand things are real bad. 2 hurricanes back to back have devastated a lot of people, and we're humbled to be able to help as much as we have thanks to your donations. We will continue to accept donations and to get them where needed most. ... See MoreSee Less
