Here’s a look at some of the stories we’ll be following today as they make headlines across Southwest Virginia:
- The Mountain Valley Cluster Dog Show in Salem starts at 8 a.m. People can enjoy vendors with a variety of dog products, items and gifts for sale at the Salem Civic Center. Admission is free and the event is scheduled to take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day until Aug. 7.
- God’s Pit Crew is asking the community for donated supplies for Blessing Buckets to help flood victims in eastern Kentucky. Starting at 9 a.m. through 5 p.m., they’ll be located at the Parkland entrance of their warehouse at 132 Parkland Drive in Danville. They are asking for supplies like toilet paper, paper towels, water, wash cloths and canned and non-perishable food. They are accepting supplies through Thursday.
- The Bedford Christmas Station will distribute shoes to 115 children today. They’ll give shoes to 46 low-income Bedford County families. If you would like to contribute to the cost of a pair of shoes, you can stop by the Christmas Station or you can mail it to BCCS at P.O. Box 1353 in Bedford.
Have a great Wednesday!
