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!
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.
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm Lunch, Live Music, Raffle Giveaways

What is an Angel Tree? It is a holiday assistance program in which an individual sponsor or group sponsor/organization/corporation purchases new toys for a deserving child (or “Angel”) or a food gift card for seniors in need. For many, the gifts they receive through the Angel Tree Program will be the only ones they open on Christmas morning.
Last year alone we registered 1,000+ families, over 3,443 children, and 285 seniors who would not experience the magic of Christmas without the generosity of people in our community.
It will take an entire army this Christmas to deliver the nearly 19,000 toys to the neediest children and provide for our seniors.
If you believe, every child and every senior deserves to experience the joy of Christmas please support us this Christmas!
Our partners who will be hosting public angel trees will be at the following locations from November 13th – December 8th:
News & Record at 200 E Market
