Valley Pediatric Groups Collect Donations for Blue Ridge Area Food Bank

Posted: Updated:

A mother from Waynesboro is doing all she can to reel in donations for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

All through April, collection boxes are set up at medical offices from Harrisonburg to Waynesboro. At the end of the month, the group that brings in the most pounds receives a mural designed just for a pediatrician's office.

"A lot of people donate food during the holidays when people are really in the spirit of giving and now everybody's out doing kind of their own thing and not thinking so much about it, so it's a good time to give food and raise awareness about families that are in need,” said Sarah Mays, collection drive organizer.

The friendly competition is between the Valley Pediatric Group of Verona and Waynesboro and the Harrisonburg Pediatric Sites.
