Local Food Pantries in Need

Rising prices are putting a strain on our local food pantries, which are working hard to meet the needs of the Colonial Beach community  Please help us help them. Through its Community Crisis Fund, the Foundation provides gift cards that the food pantries can distribute as needed. These gift cards enable clients to purchase items that the pantries might not have on hand, such as fresh foods, refrigerated items, baby products, and toiletries.

Welcome to Colonial Beach (WCB) July Meetup

The next WCB meetup will be on Thursday, July 21, at The Museum at Colonial Beach (128 Hawthorne St) beginning at 6 PM. Our guest speaker will be Joyce Reimheer, former president of Downtown Colonial Beach, who will discuss Colonial Beach's historical designation.

These monthly meetups are a great way to get to know people, and learn about Colonial Beach and ways you can serve your community. They are held the third Thursday of the month. Visit our Events page to learn the dates and places for future meetups.

We beg your pardon as we revise our website...

Last year, we moved our website to a new platform and revised its design and content. However, we are not quite finished. Our Board is updating policies and our host platform is fine-tuning its functionality. So, you will see a few areas here and there that are still "under construction." Please check back with us often as we complete those areas and add others.
