LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ) - It’s almost Christmas Basket season.

Organizers are looking ahead to “Packing Day,” when community members would traditionally come together to put together packages of food and toys for families in need in the county. This year, things will be different as they move to a packing week with social distancing and other COVID considerations, but first applications have to come in, and the deadline is approaching.

“If someone has received a basket last year, and nothing about their household has changed, and their contact information is the same, they don’t need to apply," said Jen Andrews. “But if those things that I just said, like that they had a child or they’ve moved, their phone number has changed, then they need to notify us of those changes.”

Volunteers for packing week are also needed. They can sign up by contacting the Rockbridge Christmas Basket organization at or on their Facebook page.
