Supporting Communities in the New River Valley
Not only does participating in community service make us feel good, but it can also reap public relations benefits for the association. Here are some upcoming opportunities . . . Check out the "On Your Own" Opportunities here.
Toys for Tots Donation at the Holiday Dinner
A huge thanks to our members who stepped up and brought gifts to donate to less fortunate families during the families. Hank Ross, from the US Marine Corp's Toys for Tots Program, left the evening with a full heart, a car load of toys, and a cash donation to help supplement any additional supplies they need. A big thanks for all they do in our area to help children have a Christmas!
MCEAP - Building Addition
In October 2016, our charitable contributions committee recruited a few volunteers from Shelter Alternatives, Inc, G and H Appliances, Bowers Custom Barns, and MCEAP to work on creating an enclosure at MCEAP's Thrift Store in Christiansburg.
The New River Valley Homebuilders Association and the Blacksburg Library successfully placed a little library at Nellie’s Cave Park September 2016.
VOLUNTEER with Smart Beginnings’ Reading Hour program
Through your service, you will help change a child’s academic path by encouraging a love for reading and being a positive mentor.
Reading Hour is a program in which adult volunteers are paired, one-to-one, with children in local childcare centers. These volunteers read with the same child every week for thirty minutes to generate enthusiasm for books, and increase the child's potential for success in school and in life.
