Please help meet needs in our community this holiday season

Support Our Holiday Fundraisers

Food Pantries

Please follow the link below to support our food pantries and help families in need this holiday season; or, mail a check to
CBCF, P. O. Box 375, Colonial Beach, VA 22443. Note "food pantries" on the memo line.

We initially launched our Food Pantries Fundraiser earlier this year to help our local food pantries meet an increased need due to COVID-19. Thanks to donations from the Foundation ($5,000) and neighbors like you ($7,408), we exceeded our goals. Now, months later, most of those funds have been expended. However, the need is still there and, of course, the holidays are upon us.

BAMM, a Project of the Foundation, Helps CB Kids

Every year, Sher Lee's CB Kids organization gathers volunteers and donations to ensure every child in Colonial Beach has a magical holiday experience.

Past Years  vs. This Year
In the past, BAMM (Beach Arts, Music, and Mentoring) and CB Kids collected donations of toys and held a holiday party. However, this year, instead of donating gifts, the organizations are requesting gift cards, or monetary donations to purchase gift cards, for Walmart ($50.00 or more) and Food Lion or Halls ($25.00 or more). Gift cards will be distributed to families in early December, so parents can shop for their children and holiday meals. Donations of stockings stuffed with small games, toys, puzzles, and candy, etc. are also accepted.

Three Ways to Give
Drop off gift cards and/or stockings at Colonial Gardens (4009 James Monroe Highway), anytime before December 7 (Wednesday through Saturday, 9 AM to 5 PM); or, drop by Colonial Beach Brewing (215C Washington Ave) on Friday, November 20 (2 to 9 PM).

BAMM is accepting monetary donations that will be used to purchase gift cards. To make a donation, mail a check to CBCF, P. O. Box 375, Colonial Beach, VA 22443. Note "BAMM CB Kids" on the memo line.

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

We have recently moved our website to a new platform and revised its design and content. However, we are not quite finished. 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.
