Highlands community helps raise thousands for area non-profits

The Highlands Media Group presented a check Thursday to four Alleghany area food pantries

COVINGTON, Va. – A local radio group is rallying around non-profits helping serve families in need.

The Highlands Media Group presented a check Thursday to four Alleghany area food pantries after launching a food drive on Fridays.

In just a couple weeks, the community helped raise 700 pounds of food and $2,200.

Highlands Community Bank heard of the area's generosity and decided to match that money, helping give each non-profit more than a thousand dollars.

If you would like to give you can drop off food at the Highlands Media Group radio station or donate money at Highlands Community Bank.
