2023 COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS FOOD FUND
The Galax Volunteer Fire Department announces the production of the 2023 COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS FOOD FUND for the Twin Counties and the City of Galax. The Department partners with YOU, the community, to raise $35,000 to provide 1000 FOOD BOXES to 500 area families in need. This traditional show of love by our community was started many years ago by the Galax Y’s Men’s Association and is proudly carried on by your Galax Fire Department. However, we cannot do it without you! Simply put, we provide the building and you do the rest, from raising the necessary funds, packing the boxes, and then delivering the boxes, it’s all you. Truly a community effort to bless our neighbors and share a little hope and love during this special time of year. What an opportunity!
So let’s hit the ground running! The Department needs your help in raising the funds for the food. The goal is $35,000. NO Fire Department funds are used for this project. We start from scratch yearly, so your support is vital. Donations can be made to the Community Christmas Food Fund, PO Box 330, Galax, VA 24333. Donations can also be made online at www.galaxfire.com. All proceeds go directly to the purchase of food and all donations are tax deductible.
Mark your calendars!!
PACKING NIGHT is Thursday, December 21st at 7:00pm at the Galax Firehouse.We need you!
DELIVERY DAY is Sunday December 24th at 7:00am from the Galax Firehouse. THAT’S RIGHT! CHRISTMAS EVE! You’ll be blessed!
