Four days left to donate to the CVC this holiday season


There are only four days left to donate to the 2018 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign. To reach our goal of $375,000, we’re asking every member of the Hokie Nation to show your support of our local charities during this holiday season. In the spirit of our motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), I am confident we can come together to exceed this year’s goal.

This year’s campaign has raised $311,000 so far. Please open your hearts and make a donation to one of the more than 1,000 charities who receive support from this campaign.

At this time of year, there are many people in need of basic resources, and charities need help to meet the rising demands that the holiday season brings. Your donation to the CVC, no matter the amount, can instantly make a difference for both your local charities and the people in your community that these charities serve.

In addition to knowing you are helping others in need, your donation is also your ticket to win one of three prizes in our giveaway. The prizes include an autographed Nerf football signed by Virginia Tech President Tim Sands, the HokieBird, and myself; an exclusive tour and photo opportunity with WDBJ anchor Robin Reed; and a set of tickets to see the acclaimed dance theater organization Pilobolus at the Moss Arts Center.

All you have to do for a chance to win one of these exciting prizes is donate before the campaign’s Dec. 14 deadline!

Thank you for your service to Virginia Tech and the community, and I wish you a very happy holiday season full of warmth, love, and family.
