Critical Need!

 We are in critical need of financial support as we are continuing with our

food distributions during this difficult time. Children and families throughout Central

Virginia are depending on Park View to meet this most basic need.

WHAT WE ARE DOING

 

>  Park View Community Mission is considered an essential service and will remain open. We will abide by the guidelines of the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank and Feeding America.

>   Due to safety concerns, our Food for Families pantry has moved away from the normal client-choice method of food distribution to providing a pre-packaged box. We encourage people to come pick up a food box on Thursday or Saturday. Call 434-845-8468, ext. 300.

>  The Community Resource Center is open Monday through Friday and assisting as needed, connecting neighbors to resources. Call 434-845-8468 ext. 700 for an appointment or CLICK HERE.

>   Our Food for Thought program is running a modified schedule in collaboration with the school system. Weekend food bags will be provided through the school system and made available at bus stops on Fridays.

>   The Park View Cafe, our Wednesday night community meal, is closed until further notice.

>   The Life Skills Institute will follow the lead of the Lynchburg City Schools and remain closed as long as the schools are closed. The Clothing Connection is also closed and is not accepting clothing donations at this time.
