This friendly competition between Virginia’s Chambers of Commerce kicks of on Memorial Day and runs through July 4th.
The goal? Keep the shelves stocked at Virginia’s Food Banks during the summer months – a period when donations drastically decline.
Governor McDonnell is calling on all businesses to join their local chamber in this competition. The chamber with the largest collection for their food bank will be personally awarded a prize by Gov. McDonnell.
Join the challenge and support the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank!
How The Governor’s Bowl Challenge Works:
- The competition is organized regionally, with the winning chamber per category (small, medium, and large) receiving the “Governor’s Bowl” for collecting the most food for its local food bank.
- Drop-off sites for donations will be located at Chamber offices, or other designated locations.
- Competition Rules:
a. All participating businesses must be Chamber Members
b. Extra bonus points will be awarded for early registration
c. Financial contributions will be converted to pounds, with $1 equaling four pounds
c. State Agencies
