Bama Works Fund Provides Money to 90 Central Virginia Nonprofits

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

Dozens of nonprofits in central Virginia will have more money in the bank thanks to the Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band.

The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation announced Thursday that a little more than half a million dollars will go to local organizations.

Ninety central Virginia nonprofits were awarded this money.

Many of these grants will help alleviate hunger. Some examples include Meals on Wheels, Charlottesville-Albemarle and Fluvanna Meals on Wheels, Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, the Emergency Food Network, and Little Dragons Backpack Program through Greene County Public Schools.

The fund will also support projects at the Jefferson School African-American Heritage Center.

The Scottsville Volunteer Fire Department will also benefit with the purchase of more mobile radios.

"The organizations that are typically awarded funding are groups that are really working to improve the quality of life. The band has supported environmental organizations, arts and cultural organizations, groups that are providing basic services and helping vulnerable populations,” said Brennan Gould with the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation.

The Bama Works fund of Dave Matthews Band has awarded more than $18 million in 1,200 grants since 1998.

 

Fluvanna Meals on Wheels Delivers over 50,000 Meals!

Fluvanna Meals on Wheels just celebrated five years of home delivered meals this February of 2013 and at the end of July, over 50,000 meals have been delivered! The first meals were delivered in February of 2008 starting with 8 clients after a year of planning along with getting all the proper documents in place required to start a non-profit organization. Meals on Wheels was with a collaborate vision of Wil and Marian Blackford along with Don Morton to serve those senior and disabled adults in need within their own County of Fluvanna. The co-founders had served as volunteers for many years with Charlottesville-Albemarle Meals on Wheels. Co-founder Marian Blackford shares that she never dreamed it would be such a blessing to so many in need right here in her own back yard.

Daily Progress Release on June 15, 2008

 

Dave Matthews Band Bama Works Fund at the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation announced a grant to Fluvanna Meals on Wheels for $5,000 to establish this new volunteer chapter to provide daily hot meals for elderly disabled and home-bound individuals living in Fluvanna County.

19 News Press Release on October 5, 2007

 

Meals on Wheels is coming to Fluvanna County.  In the past, elderly, disabled and low-income residents of Fluvanna County would have to rely on service from surrounding counties for a hot meal.  Starting this October all of that will change.  This new chapter will serve the entire county with the help of a local church and the University of Virginia catering services.  “A daily visit from Meals on Wheels volunteers helps ensure a connection with the community and if there’s something wrong or something that can be done, it can be communicated” said Don Morton, one of the co-founders of the Fluvanna Chapter.  Before meals can hit the road, the chapter is looking for a few volunteers.
