NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Today, The HEB Foundation is announcing two community service events to support and assist families in need of food, toys and cold weather gear for the 2020 holiday season. Their mission is, “Help us to help families in need for the holiday season.”
The first endeavor is a holiday toy and food drive for the citizens of the Hampton Roads area. Starting today and continuing through December 18, 2020, the foundation is asking for new, unused toys and non-perishable, unexpired food items from people who can give back a little something. Through this community appeal the new items will be collected and given to those in the communities that need it most.
The HEB Foundation is also hosting their annual coat drive which begins today and continues through November 19, 2020. The charity is collecting new or gently used coats, hats, scarves, gloves and mittens for all ages, from Infants to older teens. All donations and proceeds from the coat drive will be distributed to the Hampton Roads community. Many may struggle a little more this year in buying new coats and cold weather supplies. It is for these reasons that The HEB Foundation is making a concerted effort to keep people warm. If you have new and/or gently used coats that are in good condition, then please consider donating them this year to The HEB Foundation’s coat drive. The HEB Foundation is a 501C3 irs registered non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
The HEB Foundation is requesting help from the immediate and surrounding communities to be especially generous as this year has been traumatic and unsettling for children and adults of all ages. The Vice President and Founder, Ms. Chanda Coston, said , “We are concentrating efforts on those most likely to have been most impacted due to the immense economic impacts of poverty and now COVID-19. We appeal to those blessed with jobs and food who can give something extra, and help those around them stay warm and enjoy the holidays. We are asking people to bring toys and a little bit of joy to children and families who may have been doubly impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please help us here at The HEB Foundation to give a holiday meal, gifts and smiles where they are needed most. We are Healing, Evolving and Building Community… One Family at a Time. Join us”.
