Local United Way needs cards, food for meal box program


United Way of the New River Valley is in need of gift cards for turkeys and food for its annual Holiday Meal Box program. This is a great opportunity to help people in our community. The average cost of a food box for a family of four is $35. Last year the NRV United Way served more than 305 families. The organization needs the community to step up to make feeding that many families possible again this year.
