We team up with the Marching Virginians before kick-off on Thurs, Nov 8th, to go around parking lots and in front of the main stadium gates to collect canned goods and cash donations from the fans. We get excited about the game, we dance along to the Hokie Pokie with the MVs, we chat with tailgaters… it’s a great time! We serve the Marching Virginians as we take over in collections once they head in for their pregame show. During the beginning of the first quarter, we load up all the donations into a box truck for delivery the next day. The more people that help with this process, the easier and faster it goes! In addition to our Thursday night role, we also ask for volunteers to come to the Montgomery County Christmas Store on Friday morning to deliver and sort all the donations we received! That is always wonderful to be a part of because we can actually see how our collections help truly serve the community.
If you are interested in volunteering for specific roles, email [email protected]! It’s fun, it’s loud, it’s a chance to serve!
