Last week, Shara Smals, our Buena Vista branch manager delivered a generous donation to Jessica Brotherson with the Southern Virginia University, that will go towards helping the Buena Vista City Public School Systems (BVCPS). Southern Virginia University is partnering with the BVCPS to help provide school supplies to local children who need additional assistance in purchasing what they will need for this school year. With the $500 donation from Beacon and donations from others, Southern Virginia University is planning to package needed school supplies and deliver them to the school system to hand out as needed.
