Giving Back: The Social Distancing Food Drive

 For the past 3 years, True North Title’s Blacksburg office has partnered with the United Way of the New River Valley and student interns at Virginia Tech to give back to the community by collecting needed food items.

Around this time of year, student interns would be working on the “Don’t Throw Before You Go” social marketing campaign. This campaign collects non-perishable food that becomes depleted, since most food donations come around Thanksgiving. This campaign usually stocks the emergency food pantry until the holiday season rolls back around.

With COVID-19 moving school online, student interns had to become creative with this year’s food drive. Since Virginia has a stay at home order in effect until June 10th,  students came up with a campaign that adheres to Social Distancing guidelines.
