Free Gifts, Food, Supplies for Those in Need at ‘The Big Give’

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of people will be able to give Christmas gifts to their children this year thanks to The Big Give in Fishersville.

The Big Give is a one-day event in Fishersville that gives to those who need help. Each person gets one new item, plus a 33-gallon trash bag they can fill with clothes, shoes and blankets. They'll also get food, toiletries, and paper products.

Last year The Big Give helped more than 6,000 people.

"There isn't a sign-up. There's not a thing that they have to give us their tax receipts or anything else. If you want to stand in line, if you need help and you feel like you need help, you're welcome to come. Come through and get what you want," said Tanya Gigliotti, with The Big Give.

The event will be held Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Augusta Expo in Fishersville.

Organizers say they still need personal items and financial support. For more information, click here.
