Virginia Natural Gas Holds Drive-Thru School Supply Drive

NEWPORT NEWS—Virginia Natural Gas (VNG) will host a drive-thru school supply drive on Wednesday, August 18, to benefit the Salvation Army of Hampton Roads. The drive will help raise the necessary items for students returning to school as part of the “Write Stuff School Supplies Drive” campaign. The event will be held at VNG’s headquarters in Virginia Beach at 544 S. Independence Boulevard, and in Newport News at 746 Diligence Drive, from 11am to 1pm.

The school supply drive is being held to help families across Hampton Roads who may be experiencing financial hardships. It will provide the supplies students will need to be successful, whether learning online or in the classroom. Once collected, supplies will be distributed by the Salvation Army to students in late August.

The event is open to the public. For the safety of VNG’s volunteers and the community, this will be a drive-thru event. Those taking part are asked to wear a face covering. VNG is also asking that donations be placed in the trunks of vehicles, where volunteers will have contactless access to the items being donated.

Supplies needed include backpacks, colored markers, composition books, highlighters, index cards, loose-leaf paper, Post-it notes, scissors, spiral notebooks, and three-ring binders. For additional information about the “Write Stuff” campaign, visit the Salvation Army of Hampton Roads website.
