Local Charitable Organizations Highlight - October 2021
The Montgomery Museum of Art and History is a “Museum Growing with its Community.” The institution’s primary role is to present art and preserve history. To do this, the Museum promotes and supports the regional artist community by providing forums and opportunities to highlight local artwork. Additionally, the Museum facilitates engagement by interpreting history, fostering community conversations, and centering neglected or untold stories from Montgomery County and the New River Valley. In short, the institution’s role is to provide and share the community’s diverse perspectives and reflections, as informed by displays of public history and art. For more information or to donate to the Museum, please contact

By partnering with 10 Blacksburg schools, Micah's Backpack provides direct food assistance for students who are experiencing food insecurity. Every Friday during the school year, the identified students receive a backpack filled with two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinner, snacks, juice, and milk boxes, and an educational piece. On Wednesday evenings volunteers from various academic, civic and interfaith groups come together, building community while packing the backpacks. On Friday mornings volunteers deliver the bags and the partner schools distribute them to the students. Currently, 300 children in Blacksburg schools receive a gift of healthy food during the academic year and approximately 140 during the summer school break. By feeding this vulnerable population we demonstrate that their community cares about them.
Each year the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of Montgomery County and Radford serves approximately 200 homebound seniors who receive home-delivered meals through the New River Valley Agency on Aging and Radford/Fairlawn Daily Bread Meals on Wheels. This is our fourteenth year of conducting this project. It is a joint effort with RSVP of Montgomery County and Radford, Christiansburg Recreation Center, and New River Valley Agency on Aging; however, RSVP is responsible for the primary funding of the project.
This project provides another support system for seniors to maintain dignity and independence while remaining in their home environment, it serves those citizens who are most vulnerable in our area, and many of these seniors do not always have transportation to the store and during the winter months, many are housebound for even longer periods of time.
We have been unable to conduct annual fundraising projects in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID. Without continued support from the community, our funding for this project will be depleted in 2022.
If you would like to help us continue this program by making a separate donation, please contact Mandy Hayes at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 540-382-5775.
Checks can be made out to RSVP and mailed to 210 S. Pepper Street, Suite D, Christiansburg, VA 24073 or you can make an online donation here.
Thank you for all of the support!
