We work year-round to raise the necessary funds to purchase the items that are provided to our families. These are some of the ways we fundraise:

Station Fundraising Sales

Our Station Fundraising Sales are the biggest fundraisers we do!

People from all over Bedford County donate their gently used items to us to sell in our sales. Our building transforms into a thrift store, boutique, and more, and all proceeds go directly towards our yearly programs and food pantry! Come in and shop with us to see what treasures you can find!

We’re open each Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. until September 28th, 2024.

Grants and Donations

During the year, we apply for grants that we qualify for as a non-profit organization. We’re also incredibly grateful for the donations that come in from individuals, businesses, and organizations!

Billy’s Drummer Boy Challenge

In partnership with Billy, the son of one of our board members, we raise funds throughout the year through Billy’s Drummer Boy Challenge.

Check out our webpage for more information about this wonderful program and the generous young man who started it!

The Bedford Welcome Center holds the “Festival of Trees” each year during the Christmas season.

The Christmas Station participates by designing a tree for display.

The Festival of Trees is free to attend and is family-friendly. Visitors are encouraged to bring money to vote for their favorite tree(s).

All proceeds are given to the designated charities after the event.
