This year, the Student Council’s Community Service Committee chose to support the Lynchburg Daily Bread. The Daily Bread is a non-profit organization that helps feed hot meals to the people in the community. They are open everyday and help anyone who walks through their doors. Despite the challenges that Covid posed, we were able to hold two very successful fundraising events this year. In the Fall we were able to host a fundraising bake sale that raised over $780. Just a few months ago, we hosted the second event, a Valentines fundraiser that raised over $1,000. We are so grateful to all of the students, faculty, staff, and parents that helped make these fundraisers a success. We are delighted to have been able to support the Daily Bread this year because they do so much for our community. Having personally volunteered there, I can really see the amazing impact that the Daily Bread and all of the volunteers make on people’s lives. It was so amazing to be involved with such a fantastic organization this year and I hope the VES community can continue to raise awareness and support them.
