Fishersville food drive collecting items for local families in need
A Fishersville woman is organizing a food drive in conjunction with the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office and the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
London Heishman is leading the food drive, in which Heishman and a group of volunteers will pick up food items in the Emerald Hills and Wyndham neighborhoods in Fishersville on Saturday beginning at 9 a.m.
Residents of those neighborhoods that want to help out are asked to place their non-perishable food items on their porch or by their mailbox for collection.
The food collected will go to the Augusta County Sheriff’s Department to allow deputies to distribute food items when they run into a family in need.
“I am so excited about this food drive,” Heishman said. “I have already started getting donations left on our porch so we are off to a great start.”
