On Friday, August 8th, VAVP was invited by the folx at Safe Space Market RVA to participate in their weekly Farmers Market by holding a supply drive! The event ran from 5-8 p.m., and was located at the Lakeside Farmers Market pavilion. We were honored to share the space with numerous local vendors focused around the values of Queer/BIPOC liberation, sustainability, and community organizing!
Pictured above is but a small fraction of the various goods and supplies that members of the community gave to us. Donations ranged from hygiene & menstrual products, pre-packaged and non-perishable food, gift cards and GRTC Bus Cards, socks, toys, self-care items, cash, and more. We were truly humbled by the turnout and generosity of the community! All donations and proceeds will be distributed out to our current and future clients, vital work that would not be possible if not for the support you all show for VAVP and our mission.
Missed us the first time but would still like to donate supplies/just hang out with us? Good news! The supply drive with Safe Space Market RVA has a part 2, which will be held once again at Lakeside Farmers Market on the 20th of August, 5-8 p.m. We would love to see you there. Thank you again to everyone who turned out and donated!
