Thanks to the generosity of the 2017 Turkey Trot participants, you and Charlottesville Multisports were able to raise TRIPLE what has been done in the past. WOW!
The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank with its 4 Branch System (Charlottesville, Verona, Winchester and Lynchburg) serves over 200 Agencies (soup kitchens, pantries and shelters) in 25 counties on both sides of the Blue Ridge Mountains
· Those 200 Agencies serve, on average, 120,000 individuals each month, 25% being children
· Of the 25 Million pounds of food distributed each year, nearly 25% is fresh produce
· With their buying power and the generosity of their donors they can provide 4 meals for every $1 donated
This means your donation from the Turkey Trot = 3,651 meals provided for people in need in Albemarle County
YOU ALL ROCK!!!
