Local Charitable Organizations Highlight - April 2021

Bean and Rice

For the last 24 years, Beans and Rice has worked to improve the lives of low- to moderate-income individuals and families in our area by working in three main areas:
1) Food Security,
2) Family Stability and
3) Youth Development.
Initiatives include activities such as Tuesday food distribution (11am-4pm) at their Radford office, MicroSolutions technical assistance for business startups, Micro Credit and Loan programs, academic enrichment programs and summer camp experiences for elementary and middle school youth, and internships and volunteer experiences for local and visiting high school and college students. Funding for the 100+ Women Who Care NRV will be directed at our newest projects- the Pulaski Mobile Food Market (PMFM) and the Workforce Development Hub (the Hub). The PMFM will take fresh fruits and vegetables, frozen meats, some dairy, and staple dry goods to different stops around Pulaski County with payment methods that will make market items available to every income level.  The Hub is a web-based portal we are developing to connect local service providers and agencies, job seekers, and businesses so a potential employee would know exactly what services are available, through which agency, and the contact information. Trained volunteers and staff will help make sure participants complete the program and are successfully employed.

Sleep In Heavenly Peace - New River Valley

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is the only charity providing hand-made bunk beds for children who don't have beds of their own. With so many charities providing clothing, meals, and toys, little help goes to something as permanent as providing suitable beds and bedding. SHP is a group of volunteers dedicated to finding those young children living without the luxury of a bed here in the New River Valley. The joy that comes from delivering our beds to a child that otherwise doesn’t have one is a life-changing adventure that our volunteers and sponsors can experience firsthand. Visit our website or give us a call if you would like to donate, volunteer, or host a build day!

Montgomery Museum of Art and History

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
