RICHMOND, Va. – (Thursday, April 30, 2020) – The Richmond Kickers and WTVR CBS 6 have partnered together to create the #RallyTogether fund to support both Feed More and local Bon Secours healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans can purchase a rally towel for just $10 with the proceeds going to support FeedMore, plus you will receive a complimentary ticket voucher to the Richmond Kickers 2020 Home Opener (Date TBD). The Kickers will also donate an additional ticket to local healthcare workers through Bon Secours on your behalf!
“Our Richmond Kickers family is excited to lead the #RallyTogether effort as we work with our community partners at CBS 6, Bon Secours, and Feed More to assist in providing meals to local RVA families,” commented Rob Ukrop, Richmond Kickers Chairman. “We are also excited to provide a ticket to a local healthcare professional with each purchase of a rally towel as we look to celebrate the beautiful game together at City Stadium in the coming months.”
Before the COVID-19 pandemic increased the need for essential services like Feed More, central Virginia was already in great need. Feed More’s programs are dedicated to providing healthy meals and hope for a better tomorrow to Central Virginians who face hunger. For every $1 donated, Feed More is able to provide four meals to those in need. In total, Feed More’s programs and network of agencies provide more than 52,000 meals each day to neighbors in need across 34 counties and cities across Central Virginia.
“CBS 6 is proud to be a part of the Richmond Kickers' Rally Towel fundraiser for Feed More,” said Stephen Hayes, WTVR CBS 6 General Manager. “During these challenging times, there is no time better to ‘rally’ together for great causes!"
With the support of the community, their programs distribute nutritious meals and wholesome food to the neighbors who need it most. With one in seven Central Virginians struggling with hunger, Feed More’s programs aim to help our neighbors when they need a hand up.
