The 4th of July is a time for celebration and picnics, and we wanted to provide our Patrons with the holiday essentials this year. Young Men's Service League, Middleburg Charter School, Aldie Elementary School, and Middleburg BB&T helped make this possible by having food drives for us. They collected ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, relish, salad dressing, plates, cups, and cutlery. Volunteers from Seven Loaves and Young Men's Service League then assembled the goodie bags filled with these items, so we could distribute them to our Patrons for the holiday. We thank everyone for donating and assembling these great bags! This was a creative way of expanding our mission to feed those in need!
Thank you volunteers, competing barns, generous donors, and Wiseman and Associates for another successful year at the Upperville Colt and Horse Show! We had 10 barns compete this year: Ali Wolff Farm, Didi Matz Farm, CB Farm, Newstead Farm, Skyland Farm, TuDane Farm, and Winsor Farm. Our top three winners were Spring Ledge Farm in third place, Ramiro Quintana Farm in second place, and Woodhall Farm in first place. We raised $1,127 at the Great Barn Charity Challenge.
Woodhall Farm was awarded a grooming stall that was donated by the Roux's, and Ramiro Quintana and Spring Ledge Farms were awarded bottles of wine donated by Slater Run Winery. We, and the winners, appreciate these donated prizes!
A big thank you goes to Barbara Roux and Wiseman and Associates, for providing a tent for us at the show and fundraising for our mission. We thank the UCHS event coordinators for welcoming us to the show and being so accommodating. We are also appreciative to the caterers that donated 700 pounds of leftover meat, produce, and cheese from the event.
We are grateful for our team of volunteers that gave their time to help at the show throughout the week. They did a wonderful job representing who we are as an organization!
Lastly, we thank all of the donors for supporting our mission. Becuase of all of this, we are able to continue feeding those in need in Middleburg and the surrounding area.
The Outpost had its 5th Annual "Help Us Help Others" Sale December 1st- 17th. They give all proceeds to local charities, and we were so fortunate to be one of the recipients. Thank you to the Outpost, for this donation! This contribution helps us continue our mission to feed those in need.
We had a great time participating in the Middleburg Parade this year! We are grateful for the continued support from the community to help feed those in need. Thank you!
