Posted on 10/16/2018

Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) and the Virginia Beach Education Foundation (VBEF) are partnering with WTKR News 3 and Pembroke Mall to host a Beach Bags food drive Thursday, Oct. 25. The Beach Bags program provides shelf-stable meals and healthy snacks to more than 500 VBCPS students each week who might otherwise go hungry during weekends and school vacations.

The local support program is sustained entirely by donations from community members, area businesses and organizations and school organizations. Volunteers will collect both monetary and food donations for the Beach Bags program from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Pembroke Mall (Kohl's parking lot behind Walgreens). Additionally, 74 VBCPS schools are volunteering to set up collection boxes at their respective locations and encouraging their students, staff and communities to bring donations.
