Local businesses and community members are invited to donate supplies at the event being hosted on the City Market or they can drop off supplies now through August 12 at ALCOVA Mortgage branches in Roanoke or at Chocolate Paper, La De Da or Kids Square in Roanoke’s Historic City Market.

We’re looking forward to working with our downtown businesses to fill up the bus with supplies for kids in need,” says Kim Foerst, the ALCOVA Mortage Vice President of Marketing and Communication.
