Roanoke's Big Give Scheduled Saturday

Goodwill Industries of the Valleys, Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley, Roanoke Valley SPCA, and Southwestern Virginia Second Harvest Food Bank will participate in a collaborative, community donation drive Saturday, Dec. 5, at the Roanoke Civic Center, Parking Lot A, from 10 a.m.–3 p.m.

Project Give brings together four area non-profits to help collect much needed donations to support their missions. The need in the community for assistance from non-profit organizations is greater than ever before.

Material and food donations will allow each organization to provide necessary services in the community. Items that will be collected include: clothing, housewares, canned & other non-perishable food items, furniture, building supplies and fixtures, dry or canned pet food, computers, games, and toys. Material donations should be in gently used condition or better.


  1. Thanks for the post Dan! The goal is 400 donations this Saturday between the four organizations. Thanks in advance to everyone who will donate at this event - also a great way to get a tax receipt before the end of the year!

  2. Thanks for sharing, Dan! I've witnessed these four organizations come together in support of their common goal...helping Roanoke area residents when they need it most. Roanoke is truly blessed to have leaders like these...

  3. Thanks for spreading the word about Project Give! This is such a great opportunity for residents to touch the lives of thousands of people struggling in our region. Thank you Dan for your support, and thank you to all of you who are planning on coming out to donate this Saturday!
