Everybody knows that the closer it gets to the holidays the more people you see collecting donations for various charities throughout the region. It’s no different here in Radford.

There are people throughout the region who are hungry; who are in need of clothing, shelter and medical care and there are many kind-hearted folks trying to do their part by helping in whatever way possible.

Our loyal customers are no different. As the manager at 7-Eleven Radford I want to give a huge shout out to the customers who PAID FORWARD 320 pizza slices to be distributed to needy children here in our fine City. Through their generous donations we were able to pass along 40 large 7-Eleven pizzas to New River Community Action located in downtown Radford who in turn presented the pizzas to their clients.

Our customers are primarily students, professionals and staff members from Radford University as well as many many loyal and dedicated local citizens who shop our store on a daily basis. Without their strong passion for giving these children would have gone hungry this past weekend.

Thank you to all 7-Eleven Radford customers who contributed by paying it forward with pizza.
