Roanoke Gas Company employees are participating in the We CARE Food Drive. Our goal is to donate 811 non-perishable food items and diapers to Feeding America Southwest Virginia by 811 Day – August 11th. Not only are employees hoping to promote the Dig with CARE message, but also bring to light the number of children in our area who deal with food insecurity. A recent study revealed an increase number of households in our area that do not meet Federal assistance guidelines but still rely on charitable food programs such as Feeding America Southwest Virginia.
811 Day is recognized around the nation to remind contractors and homeowners to always call 811 before digging.
Remember if you have a digging project in your yard, Dig with CARE and call 811 3 days before digging to have your underground utility lines marked.
