The Triad Holiday Food Drive, sponsored by FOX8 and Old Dominion Freight Line, provides The Salvation Army with food to help feed local families in need. Nearly 9 million cans of food have been collected since 1987. This is the largest and most important food collection event of the year for The Salvation Army.  Last year, over 22,000 people were served.

For many years, FOX8 and Old Dominion have celebrated the Triad Holiday Food Drive by hosting concerts at the Greensboro Coliseum, Lawrence Joel Veteran Memorial Coliseum, and in Burlington at Williams High School. The Holiday concerts have become a tradition for many Piedmont Triad families, offering quality holiday entertainment. The Triad Holiday Concerts are open to the public and an array of seasonal music is provided by the Greensboro and Winston Salem Symphonies.  The only “cost” to attend is a canned food donation.

Help us continue conquering this problem by registering your company to participate in the FOX8 and Old Dominion Triad Holiday Food Drive!

7th Annual Benefit Ride

Click on image for full-size flyer.

7th Annual Benefit Ride. New House For Curtis!

Details: 

Curtis and his grandfather lost their home to a fire in West Virginia. They are currently living in a shack and all Curtis wants is a bathroom.

The family has never had a well before and currently, they get their water for an old coal mine, so with the funds raised through Anchor Ridge Ministries, they are going to dig them a well so they don’t have to keep climbing the mountain to keep the water flowing!

After Josh Paul from Anchor Ridge Ministry met with the contractor, it was determined the current home is unlivable. So they have stepped out in faith to build them a BRAND NEW HOME!!!

Donations will be accepted the day of the ride between 8:00 am-3:00 pm at East Bend Baptist Church.

Bring those Motorcycles and Classic Cars. There will also be a Silent Auction.

100% of the proceeds will go to Anchor Ridge Ministry to help fund this project. Afterward Buffalo’s Famous BBQ with trimmings, 50/50 Drawing, Silent Auction & Door Prizes.
