Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is coming to Hampton Roads! During the first week in February, a deserving family on the Southside will be getting a new home! I personally love this show. We have watched it since Season One, many moons ago.
Food donations are needed to help make this edition a success. Last March in Savannah, Georgia Extreme Makeover: Home Edition collected 307,000 pounds of food, so Hampton Roads wants to beat that record. I think we can!
The Extreme Food Drive will begin January 20th at a pep rally to be held at the Virginia Beach Convention Center from 7-9pm
All Farm Fresh stores will be drop-off sites as well as all DAV Thrift stores.
A note from the Food Bank: Whenever possible, thank you for transporting your donation to the Food Bank! Each trip not made by a Food Bank truck and personnel allows us to redirect funds for food and food services. The cost of one hour of transportation could provide at least 181 meals!
