Lynchburg nonprofit calling on community as one of its biggest fundraiser is canceled
LYNCHBURG, Va. – The roof of The Bank of the James building in downtown Lynchburg was empty Thursday. For years, Over the Edge has brought in $60,000 to help local families in need, but not this year. “The need doesn’t cease just because the whole world shuts down,” explained Lauren Barnes, the organization’s community relations specialist. This need is not gone anywhere and the community support for children in our community is vital,” Gilbert said. The campaign is asking the community and businesses to donate money and help meet their $60,000 goal.
